Description

“[Women Who Dig] belongs in the canon of food studies. I’ll be thinking about the testimonies in this book for a very long time to come.” Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved and The Value of Nothing

“Trina Moyles reveals the determination, imagination, and resilience of women from around the world who are engaged in persistent struggles to produce food. Their stories tell a lot about social and environmental justice, hope, community, and what really matters.” Annette Desmarais, Canada Research Chair in Human Rights, Social Justice, and Food Sovereignty

“Every page of this book glows with Moyles’s affection for the women she travels the world to meet…. an elegantly-written tribute to those who coax food from soil.” Marcello Di Cintio, author of Walls

“Rigorous and insightful …. [An] invaluable contribution to the conversation we all should be having about sustainable farming.” Jennifer Cockrall-King, author of Food and the City

As a photojournalist and writer, KJ Dakin aims to complement the power of images with the context of words. Look for her hitchhiking on the asphalt of Eastern Europe, treeplanting across British Columbia's rugged crags, or sipping whiskey in smoky watering holes from Nicaragua to Bosnia and South Africa.
