Animal, Vegetable, Junk - A history of food, from sustainable to suicidal

by Mark Bittman

Interesting reading about the history of farming in America and how early on it was being treated as an extractive "industry" with total detachment from what is good for the community and the land.  Too often we tend to think of how farming has been damaging since WWII, but this book takes the foundation much farther back to the beginning of Europeans/British arriving in North America.

I am currently slowly making my way through Christopher Tolkien's "History of Middle Earth" volumes. I also frequently pick up and reread some stories of his father JRR Tolkien collected in "Tales from the Perilous Realm" and "Tree and Leaf." I cannot recommend enough his stories "Leaf by Niggle" and "Smith of Wootton Major."
