Harvest : An Adventure Into the Heart of America's Family Farms
--Ted Morgan, author of Wilderness at Dawn
"A lively visit with the dauntless men and women who operate America's family farms and help provide our miraculous annual bounty. Richard Horan writes with energy and passion."
--Hannah Nordhaus, author of The Beekeeper's Lament
"Horan's new book evocatively describes the peril and promise of family farms in America. I loved joining him on this journey, and so will you."
--T.A. Barron, author of The Great Tree of Avalon
In Seeds, novelist and nature writer Richard Horan sought out the trees that inspired the work of great American writers like Faulkner, Kerouac, Welty, Wharton, and Harper Lee. In Harvest, Horan embarks upon a serendipitous journey across America to work the harvests of more than a dozen essential or unusual food crops--and, in the process, forms powerful connections with the farmers, the soil, and the seasons.
