Reviews

"Since Tom Philpott is among the first rank of food and farming writers it comes as no surprise, but Perilous Bounty is a tour de force - it showcases the danger we're in as the environmental vise tightens, and how we might still find our way out of this hole." --Bill McKibben, author of FALTER: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?

"There is no food writer I respect more than Tom Philpott. Perilous Bounty is masterful, important, and sobering - a must-read for anyone who eats and hopes to continue doing so in our changing world." --Barry Estabrook, New York Times-bestselling author of TOMATOLAND
