Description
When we imagine the typical American farmer, many people visualize sun-roughened skin, faded overalls, and calloused hands—hands that are usually white. Though the trend of organic farming and homesteading is slowly changing how the farmer is portrayed, farmers of color are still largely left out of the picture. In this rich and surprising collection of portraits and stories, Natasha Bowens—a photographer and storyteller as well as a farmer—re-defines the face of the American farmer, and sheds light on the seemingly forgotten agricultural legacy of people of color.

"[This book] captures the heart and souls of farmers of color ... farmers that are frequently forgotten as the stories of agriculture in our country are told. Through the lens of a camera we step into the cultural history of our foods and the beautiful and proud people that grow them."—Cynthia Hayes

"Bowens's deep political understanding is obvious throughout her book; she's knowledgeable about the history of oppression that affects farmers of color today and can explain the effects of political pacts like NAFTA on Mexican farmers, all while delivering pertinent statistics that illustrate her points. At heart, though, this is a book about the people themselves."—Publishers Weekly

"Through her compelling stories and powerful images Natasha Bowens' rainbow of farmers ... remind us that the industrialization of our food system and the oppression of our people—two sides of the same coin—will, if not confronted, sow the seeds of our own destruction."—Mark Winne
