    About the talent:
    As a writer, farmer and the Publisher and Editorial Director of MOTHER EARTH NEWS, Bryan Welch is well known for his optimism, sense of humor and his commitment to empowering people to live their own versions of the good life. His work demonstrates unequivocally that it’s possible to do well in business without destroying natural or human resources.
    MOTHER EARTH NEWS Senior Associate Editor Robin Mather grew up in a rural village in Michigan, where her classmates at school were the sons and daughters of farmers. She frequently stayed with friends whose families ran farms, and loved everything about their lives — from bucking bales of straw and hay to bottle-feeding calves.
    Cheryl Long is the Editor-in-Chief of MOTHER EARTH NEWS magazine and a leading advocate for more sustainable lifestyles. She lives on an 8-acre homestead near Topeka, Kan., that is powered in part by solar panels. There, she manages a large organic garden and a small flock of Welsummer chickens.
    Hank Will, Editor-in-Chief of Grit magazine, has been farming and selling farm products for almost 30 years and believes that demand for heritage breeds is poised to explode. His family’s seed company and nursery business inspired his academic career in genetics, while childhood experiences instilled a fascination with animal husbandry.
    Mother Earth Living Editor-in-Chief Jessica Kellner is enthusiastic about sharing the simple, commonsense ways we can connect with nature to better our health, homes and lives — including using herbal remedies to prevent or treat common ailments and cleaning our houses with affordable, natural ingredients.
    Karen K. Will is editor of The Heirloom Gardener magazine and operates Prairie Turnip Farm in Osage County, Kan., with her husband, Hank Will. She is a freelance writer, photographer and blogger, and the author of Cooking With Heirlooms: Seasonal Recipes With Heritage-Variety Vegetables and Fruits.
    Allison Martin is Managing Editor of Mother Earth Living, and previously spent five years on staff at The Herb Companion magazine, where she learned about plant medicine traditions. She lives in Lawrence, Kan., with her family, two bulldogs and cat.

  • MOUNTAIN JUSTICE

    CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $17.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

    Mountaintop removal (MTR) does exactly what it says: A mountaintop is stripped of trees, blown to bits with explosives, then pushed aside by giant equipment … all to expose a layer of coal to be mined. Hundreds of thousands of acres of ancient forested mountains have been ''removed'' this way and will never again support the biologically rich and diverse forest and stream communities that evolved there over millions of years. Instead, they've been sacrificed to support a flawed national energy policy. Mountain Justice tells a terrific set of firsthand stories about living with MTR and offers on-the-scene (and behind-the-scenes) reporting of what people are doing to try to stop it. Tricia Shapiro lets the victims of mountaintop removal and their allies tell their own stories, allowing moments of quiet dignity and righteous indignation to share center stage. This book includes coverage of the sharp escalation of anti-MTR civil disobedience, with more than 130 arrests in West Virginia alone during the first year of the Obama administration. This is an international issue, with campaigns against this massively damaging method of mining taking place in the United Kingdom, India, Canada, New Zealand and Burma. The proposed destruction of a number of habitats, from mountaintops to heath land to jungle, is a loss for us all.
