From the Publisher. As the cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast food outlet confronts us with a bewildering and treacherous landscape, what's at stake becomes not only our own and our children's health, but the health of the environment that sustains life on earth. Pollan follows each of the food chains—industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves—from the source to the final meal, always emphasizing our coevolutionary relationship with the handful of plant and animal species we depend on.

An eye-opener. Green this, green that, Americans are singularly unaware of what is going on in the food industry or where we stand.
