Never Out of Season: How Having the Food We Want When We Want It Threatens Our Food Supply and Our Future
by Rob Dunn Author
Tomatoes bred for trucking. Standardized fruit susceptible to being wiped out by a single disease. Modern agriculture & shipping have made foods available year-round, in large quantity, but that brings risk to our health & to the diversity of our planet. Beautiful storytelling combine with natural history & evolutionary biology in this timely book about a pressing threat to our world.
"Nature is threatened, by our simplification of the Earth. But, as Dunn makes clear in this soon to be classic page turner of a book, this simplification of nature makes us ever more rather than less dependent on nature. This is a lesson we need to heed now at a time in which our bananas, but also our wheat, our cassava and even the rubber in our tires is threatened like never before. Everyone who eats should read Never Out of Season."―Paul R. Ehrlich, author of Human Natures
