The Deepest Roots: Finding Food and Community on a Pacific Northwest Island Kindle Edition

3.6 out of 5 stars 4 ratings

Product description


A layered experience of discovery, moving organically between personal stories, cultural history, and discussions of environmental policy. . . . Bainbridge Island is a perfect microcosm through which to explore the question of local sustainability. . . . It is a pleasant surprise to hear from some Whatcom County locals among Alcala's interviews. -- Lisa Gresham * Cascadia Weekly * Alcala takes the local food movement, so long the province of hippy gringos, and brings it home to the immigrant communities for whom it has so long been a fact of life. -- Alejandra Oliva * Remezcla * The Deepest Roots should inspire readers to expend elbow grease in working la tierra and seeking community with like-minded gente for healthier living. -- Michael Sedano * La Bloga * This unique and fascinating memoir blends the history of Washington with the story of her family's migration from Mexico, highlighted by informed insights on ecology, economy and gastronomy. -- Rigoberto Gonzalez * NBC News Latino * The issues Alcala explores are relevant beyond Bainbridge's boundaries, . . . from the meaning of a homeland to the questions of who has power in the modern world and who has responsibility. . . . The stories have the effect of coming to the reader as they came to the writer, raising as many difficult questions as they answer. -- Rebekah Denn * Seattle Times * As important now as when it was first published in 2016, Kathleen Alcala's book The Deepest Roots: Finding Food and Community on a Pacific Northwest Island recently released in paperback, allows the reader to come along as Alcala explores the food culture of her home, Bainbridge Island, learns more about how to care for her health, and discovers the ways our collective fates are intimately connected. * 1889 Washington's Magazine * --This text refers to the paperback edition.
