"Required reading for every serious foodie, gardener and farmer's market junkie ... The summer beach read of academic writing. " Los Angeles Times Book Review "Designed for portability, this stout little tome easily fits into a glove box, ready for retrieval when a passing agricultural landscape baffles. But being such an engaging companion, the Field Guide to California Agriculture will more than likely migrate to your bedside reading table." -- Julie Foster Zyzzyva "Full of useful and interesting information about the crops and livestock you might encounter while driving around California." -- A.B. Westways Magazine "A book that brings to life the vast panorama of the state's farming industry and its fascinating historical, ecological and ethnocultural overtones... Reading its richly informative commentary out loud while admiring almonds and citrus in blossom on a drive down Interstate 5 is a refreshing alternative to video game stupor." -- Laura Thomas San Francisco Chronicle
