Renowned scientist and author Goodall delivers an eye-opening and empowering book that explores the social and personal significance of what people eat.
The renowned scientist who fundamentally changed the way we view primates and our relationship with the animal kingdom now turns her attention to an incredibly important and deeply personal issue-taking a stand for a more sustainable world. In this provocative and encouraging book, Jane Goodall sounds a clarion call to Western society, urging us to take a hard look at the food we produce and consume-and showing us how easy it is to create positive change.Offering her hopeful, but stirring vision, Goodall argues convincingly that each individual can make a difference. She offers simple strategies each of us can employ to foster a sustainable society. Brilliant, empowering, and irrepressibly optimistic, HARVEST FOR HOPE is one of the most crucial works of our age. If we follow Goodall's sound advice, we just might save ourselves before it's too late.
Jane Goodall was born in London in 1934. She started working with chimps In 1960 and has become a leading conservationist of both animals and their habits. She has received numerous science awards plus a knighthood and is the author of numerous books including many for children.
