Mother Nature’s Daughters: 21st Century Women Farmers
Paula vW. Dáil
Nearly half of all farmland in the U.S. is owned by women—295,000 of them. In an enterprise traditionally dominated by men, they are taking a lead role in overhauling a complex, often dysfunctional food system. This book features eight stories of women farmers who persevere despite treacherous weather and erratic commodities markets. Smart, independent, hard-working and politically astute, they explain in their own words how and why they chose, and continue to choose, farming.
