Farmer's Market Will Never Look the Same After

Blithe Tomato

Title: Blithe Tomato
By: Mike Marshall

Digs below the trendy, glossy surface of contemporary small scale farming, uncovering rich soil beneath. Unlikely ever to enjoy wide distribution, but remarkably insightful and delightfully well written.
Set in California's Central Valley, will amply reward serendipitous discovery in library stacks.
