  • Description or summary of the book: Although a practicing scientist in the field of water and agriculture, the author has written about the drama of how the world feeds itself in story form, accessible to a wide audience. The book starts in his own fruit and vegetable garden, exploring the 'how and why' questions about the way things grow before moving on to stories about soil, rivers, aquifers and irrigation. The book closes with a brief history of agriculture, how the world feeds itself today and how to think through some of the big conundrums of modern food production. Watch an interview with the author on Stateline ACT, and the book launch in his own garden:
