        Long before supermarkets taught us what we should buy to eat, we simply looked around and ate what looked good. A Curious Harvest marks a return to this kind of thinking. Focusing on ingredients rather than finished dishes, Maximus Thaler of The Gleaners’ Kitchen offers a choose-your-own primer for preparing tasty, nutritious meals without dogma or shopping lists. Inside, each ingredient (ranging from the common to the curious) is beautifully and reverently illustrated by Dayna Safferstein. On each page you’ll find information about storing and preparing, when to roast and when to juice, and what goes well with what. What you won’t find are complicated recipes requiring expensive trips to the supermarket. The result is nothing short of radical.

        Climate change presents an unprecedented challenge to the productivity and profitability of agriculture in North America. More variable weather, drought and flooding create the most obvious damage, but hot summer nights, warmer winters, longer growing seasons and other environmental changes have more subtle but far-reaching effects on plant and livestock growth and development.

        Resilient Agriculture recognizes the critical role that sustainable agriculture will play in the coming decades and beyond. The latest science on climate risk, resilience and climate change adaptation is blended with the personal experience of farmers and ranchers to explore:

        • The "strange changes" in weather recorded over the last decade
        • The associated shifts in crop and livestock behavior
        • The actions producers have taken to maintain productivity in a changing climate

        The climate change challenge is real, and it is here now. To enjoy the sustained production of food, fiber and fuel well into the 21st century, we must begin now to make changes that will enhance the adaptive capacity and resilience of North American agriculture. The rich knowledge base presented in Resilient Agriculture is poised to serve as the cornerstone of an evolving, climate-ready food system.
