Son of a Farmer, Child of the Earth, and is written by 4th generation farmer Eric Herm, who lives on his farm in Western Texas. The book discusses some of the devastating effects of conventional commercial agriculture, given the excessive use of pesticides, GMO's, soil degradation, and the small farmer becoming an endangered species, as more and more land is owned by a few large individuals or companies. However, the book has an overall positive and constructive message, as it empowers the reader (and farmers) to make changes in their lives that could influence the course of agriculture.
