First edition of Goodall's "wake-up call," signed on the title page by her.
In Harvest for Hope, Goodall writes: "we are at a critical point in human history. If we continue to allow the corporate world to control our food supply, we could devour or poison, within the next half century, all the food resources that sustain us… Remember, every food purchase is a vote." Environmental journalist Bill McKibben praises Goodall, noting: "Thrice a day you get the chance to change the planet. You can change it in significant ways if you follow just some of this book's wise advice." John Robbins calls Harvest for Hope "one of those rare, truly great books that can change the world," and Francis Moore Lappé highlights Goodall's message, declaring it a "wake-up call" and proclaiming, "I love this book!" Co-authored with Gary McAvoy and Gail Hudson. With 14 pages of photographic illustrations.
A fine signed copy.
