A deeply human-centered perspective on the origins of America's food Where Am I Eating? bridges the gap between global food producers and the American consumer, providing an insightful look at how our eating habits affect farmers and fishermen around the world. Follow the author on his global quest to meet the workers that nurture, harvest, and hunt our food, as he works alongside them—loading lobster diving boats in Nicaragua, harvesting bananas in Costa Rica, lugging cocoa beans in Ivory Coast with a modern-day slave, picking coffee beans in Colombia and hauling tomatoes in Indiana. This new edition includes a study guide, a deeper explanation of the "glocal" concept, and advice for students looking to become engaged as both local and global citizens. Arguing neither for nor against globalization, this book simply explores the lives of those who feed us. Imports account for eighty-six percent of America's seafood, fifty percent of its fresh fruit, and eighteen percent of its fresh vegetables. Where Am I Eating? examines the effects of this reliance on those who supply the global food economy. Learn more about the global producers that feed our nation, and learn from their worldviews intensely connected to people and planet Discover how food preferences and trends affect the lives of farmers and fishermen Catch a boots-on-the-ground glimpse of the daily lives of food producers on four continents Meet a modern-day slave and explore the blurred line between exploitation and opportunity Observe how the poorest producers fare in the global food economy This book takes a human-centered approach to food, investigating the lives of the people at the other end of the global food economy, observing the hope and opportunity—or lack thereof—that results from our reliance on imports. Where Am I Eating? is a touching, insightful, informative look at the origins of our food.

"Thoughtfully traces [Mara Wilson's] journey from child actress to Hollywood dropout...Who is she now? She's a writer." —NPR's "Guide To 2016’s Great Reads" “Growing up, I wanted to be Mara Wilson. Where Am I Now? is a delight.” —Ilana Glazer, cocreator and star of Broad City Named a best book of the month by GoodReads and Entertainment Weekly A former child actor best known for her starring roles in Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, Mara Wilson has always felt a little young and out of place: as the only kid on a film set full of adults, the first daughter in a house full of boys, a Valley girl in New York and a neurotic in California, and a grown-up the world still remembers as a little girl. Tackling everything from what she learned about sex on the set of Melrose Place, to discovering in adolescence that she was no longer “cute” enough for Hollywood, these essays chart her journey from accidental fame to relative (but happy) obscurity. They also illuminate universal struggles, like navigating love and loss, and figuring out who you are and where you belong. Candid, insightful, moving, and hilarious, Where Am I Now? introduces Mara Wilson as a brilliant new chronicler of the experience that is growing up female.

This book is for all parents: those who are pregnant, those who already are gifted with children and those future mothers and fathers just waiting for a special soul to make their life complete. For the latter, this book can be used daily for mediation and as a tool in asking for that special little person to choose us to be their parents. For those who have already been blessed with little ones, this book can be used as a valuable reminder for them as to who they are, where they are and what their purpose in life is. We are so busy reacting to external situations in our ever-changing world that we often forget who we really are, smothering ourselves in a blanket of stress and anxiety over things that don't really matter. The ever-observant child will learn to mimic how we deal with situations, carrying the same heavy blanket with them and can in turn lose track of what really matters, who they are and their real purpose in life. This book is about shedding those unnecessary layers to reveal our true selves so that through successful relationships we can share our love, happiness, peace, truth and strength with each individual we come in to contact with. Please do not underestimate the capabilities of a child. Whether he or she is 6 years old, a newborn baby or a young fetus, they all can hear us and they all feed off the love we show them. Every child, whatever their age, needs us to love them unconditionally, care for them and to be good role models. Practice this by reading the book to your loved ones, wherever they may be. I wish you the very best and I am grateful for this opportunity to share all my love, happiness and strength with all the parents and children in this world, and beyond. Dr. Vijaya Chetty

“Where Am I Going” is about awareness in the human sense, it’s about being aware of our everyday existence here and now. Why we do the things we do, day in and day out? Is what we are doing day to day really profitable, and if so, in what way is it profitable? Does it profit our further meaning here in this life? Or is it all together a waste of our time? Have we considered the God factor? Are we considering the hereafter, and if not, why not? Are we surrounded by spirits, some good and some bad? If so, how does that come into play in our earthly agenda? Why does one exist, and where is our thoughts on this matter?Some of us go on living daily without regarding our immediate future. Our immediate future is after death. Eternity cannot be compared to our short lived time here in this existence. Just as one prepares for life by going to college, should we not much more prepare for our hereafter? If we are not, why are we not?Answers to these thoughts of question and much more will be found in the chapters ahead. I believe the information found here can inspire you for a more meaningful existence and a more profitable life.
