Looping personal anecdotes from 40 years of global travels with stories from noble farmer Davids and corporate Goliaths, Goodall methodically builds her case for shopping organic and living modestly. Mustering a tender gumption, she details the vicious cycle of pesticide-ridden and genetically engineered crops which feed the unknowing majority of consumers; and also feed the antibiotic-treated animals that provide these folks with inexpensive entrees. Leaving nasty slaughterhouse scenes to less tactful pens, Goodall focuses more on the product of "factory farming" techniques: mountains of waste, nutritionally depleted soil, polluted water, displaced organic farmers, and severely compromised food.
Hope springs from positive sources: Edible Schoolyard programs in the U.K. and U.S., parents breaking their schools' "unholy alliance" with fast food chains and soft drink companies, a steady rise in organic purchases. Goodall offers many suggestions for rallying others, exercising one's own consumer powers, and just plain eating less meat. Conservationists might say this information is nothing new, which might explain why Goodall provides only tertiary references to her many statistics and facts. But for those who prefer that their own eating habits be stirred--not shaken--into question, the kindly Chimpanzee Lady provides the gentle touch required. --Liane Thomas --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Dr. Jane Goodall explains the issues in easy to understand terms, and offers plenty of guidance to make better, more educated and mindful decisions on where, and what we eat and drink.
By following her instructions, we are promising our families healthier and longer lives.
For all of the information included, Harvest for Hope is relatively short and undemanding. I recommend this book to everyone.
Dr. Jane Goodall does a great job in increasing my awareness of many issues I was not yet made aware.
Harvest for Hope is a must read for anyone interested in how their health is being affected by our food and water.

I've considered myself to be fairly well educated when it comes to environmental issues and adhering to ethical eating habits and this book extended that education.
