Title:
A year in the fields : the state of Washington farmer
Summary:
"Long before Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks or Amazon, Washington state was known for its world-class agriculture. Apple orchards and waving wheatfiields. Hops for the finest beer and potatoes for your favorite french fries. Most of the world sees our state very differently, as the home of high tech, high-flying jets and highly caffeinated beverages. Yet agriculture remains at the heart of what makes Washington what it is. From April 2017 to the fall of 2018, The Spokeman-Review chronicled the state of Washington agriculture. The politics and trade. The farms. The families. The heart of the Washington farmer. When our newspaper began telling the story of the Washington farmer, we learned so much. We found fear and uncertainty. We also found families with hope, courage, heart and pride. This is their story."-- Back of Cover Jacket.
