Barbara Kingsolver: "The baby boom psyche..."

"The baby boom psyche embraces a powerful presumption that education is a key to moving away from manual labor, and dirt - two undeniable ingredients of farming. It's good enough for us that somebody, somewhere, knows food production well enough to serve the rest of us with all we need to eat, each day of our lives.

Is the story of bread, from tilled ground to our table, less relevant to our lives than the history of the thirteen colonies?"
