Description

'You remember, in a flash, how Lloyd raised these heavens. Raised them for you. Eyes peeled in the dark, you recall bouncing on this same bed, as he stood next to you on the mattress and tried to consult his map of the constellations . . . You lay on your back, watching. He stood on his tiptoes and stretched across the heavens with Polaris balanced on his fingertip, and you could feel the mattress tremble beneath him, beneath you. Your tall, rickety father. With the North Star stuck in place, he smiled, then moved south towards the next horizon.'This startlingly haunting and thoroughly entertaining tale is crammed with lessons and experiences to inspire us all.In the stark light of day we bear witness to the trials of the Fuller family, cultivators of Fuller Farms in Power County, Idaho. With a lifetime of careful propagation, preservation and patient nurturing of potatoes and seeds behind them, Lloyd Fuller and his Japanese wife, Momoko, have begun to feel the ravages of time. Their only daughter, Yumi, left home twenty-five years ago, and now they must attempt to consider the future of their precious yet fragile livelihood.Meanwhile a troupe of young revolutionaries are scouring the land in their faithful Winnebego, their eccentric, volatile lives focused on restoring farming practice once and for all. As the 'Seeds of Resistance' come crashing into Fullers Farms so too does Yumi return to the fold, and the lives of Lloyd and Momoko are certain never to be the same again...This is a colourful, eye-opening novel about the creation and cultivation of the seed. And yet through the seed's cycle we are reminded of the creation of all that makes up life itself; of the importance of loyalty, protection, forgiveness, trust and love in an all-evolving, ever-changing universe.
