  • Campesino A Campesino: Voices from Latin America's Farmer to Farmer Movement for Sustainable Agriculture

    Eric Holt-gimenez

    Paperback (Food First Books, April 1, 2006)
    Campesino a Campesino tells the inspiring story of a true grassroots movement: poor peasant farmers teaching one another how to protect their environment while still earning a living. The first book in English about the farmer-led sustainable agriculture movement in Latin America, Campesino a Campesino includes lots of first-person stories and commentary from the farmer-teachers, mixing personal accounts with detailed analysis of the political, socioeconomic, and ecological factors that galvanized the movement. Campesino farmer leading a farmer to farmer training session in Mexico by Eric Holt-GimenezMany years ago, author Eric Holt-Gimenez was a volunteer trying to teach sustainable agriculture techniques in the dusty highlands of central Mexico, with little success. Near the end of his tenure, he invited a group of visiting Guatemalan farmers to teach a course in his village. What he saw was like nothing he had known. The Guatemalans used parables, stories, and humor to present agricultural improvement to their Mexican compadres as a logical outcome of clear thinking and compassion; love of farming, of family, of nature, and of community. Rather than try to convince the Mexicans of their innovations, they insisted they experiment new things on a small scale first to see how well they worked. And they saw themselves as students, respecting the Mexicans' deep, lifelong knowledge of their own particular land and climate. All they asked in return was that the Mexicans turn around and share their new knowledge with others--which they did. CAC campo3_photo by Food FirstThis exchange was typical of a grassroots movement called Campesino a Campesino, or Farmer to Farmer, which has grown up in southern Mexico and war-torn Central America over the last three decades. In the book Campesino a Campesino, Holt-Gimenez writes the first history of the movement, describing the social, political, economic, and environmental circumstances that shape it. The voices and stories of dozens of farmers in the movement are captured, bringing to vivid life this hopeful story of peasant farmers helping one another to farm sustainably, protecting their land, their environment, and their families' future.

    Judy Levering Duff

    eBook (First Books, Sept. 2, 2002)
    Kept on a throne in a glass room by her parents in order to preserve her perfect beauty, Princess Isabella knows nothing of the outside world. Waited on hand and foot and taught nothing more than to sit prettily and be admired, she is unprepared for the fate that awaits her. At the age of ten, a troll kidnaps her from her throne and it is several weeks before she manages to escape. Alone in a world where everything and everyone is foreign to her, she must discover what other strengths she has besides her beauty. Her journey home pits her against a hideous beast, rodents, quicksand, blood-sucking slugs, and a series of other torments. But she also makes good friends along the way including the eccentric Grammy, the loner Phinius, and the brave warrior Lyalus. If Isabella finally reaches her home, will she be able to prove to her parents that she has many other strengths besides her beauty and convince them to release her from her glass cage once and for all?
