Praise for Growing a Revolution:

“Montgomery has the rare talent of making complex scientific topics not only understandable but truly fascinating. Growing a Revolution is both exceptionally enlightening and tremendously enjoyable. Highly recommended reading.”

—Nicolette Hahn Niman, author of Defending Beef and Righteous Porkchop

“Soil's greatest living advocate, David Montgomery, has done it again. Growing a Revolution proposes the radical idea that by improving soil health, we can heal not only the earth but ourselves as well. A call to action that underscores a common goal: to change the world from the ground up.”

—Dan Barber, chef and author of The Third Plate

David Montgomery is a Professor of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he is a member of the Quaternary Research Center. His latest book explores the ways in which farming and land management can be a major part of the solution to climate change, through practices ranging from "beyond organic" to large scale conservation agriculture still incorporating conventional practices.

Montgomery is also the author of Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations and The Hidden Half of Nature: The Microbial Roots of Life and Health (co-authored with Anne Biklé).
