Reviews of other books by Steven McFadden

Whole Earth Review on Farms of Tomorrow, America’s first book on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a volume which helped inspire the movement to grow from two farms in the late 1980s to over 13,000, with hundreds of thousands of shareholders, in 2009:

“This is the best book to access the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) movement, including philosophical, spiritual, practical essays and how-to (including financial discussions). This is the source for tools, organizations, farms, and networks concerning the renewal of agriculture.”

Resurgence Magazine on Farms of Tomorrow: “It is rare to come across any practical farming guide that sets out, from its inception, a set of principles that embrace social, spiritual and economic concerns on completely equal terms…. The wisdom and clarity of philosophy are striking throughout.”

The New York Times Book Review on Profiles in Wisdom: Native Elders Speak About the Earth, inspired by John F. Kennedy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Profiles in Courage, the stories and thinking of 17 contemporary Native American spiritual elders:

Profiles in Wisdom does a fine job not only of presenting the dignity, complexity, and wit of important Indian philosophers and religious leaders, but also of issuing cautions against easy uplift and wisdom injections…. There are some stirring and unexpected powers unleashed in this book.”

Library Journal on Profiles in Wisdom: “This wise and provocative collection is highly recommended.”

The Washington Times on Profiles in Wisdom: “Our leaders should sit and listen to the counsel Steven McFadden has gathered in this book.”

Headline Muse on Ancient Voices, Current Affairs: Legend of the Rainbow Warriors, a journalistic account of one of the core myths of the Americas and an electrifying exploration of how that myth is playing out in real time:

“In the wake of the September 11 tragedies, The Legend of the Rainbow Warriors is of added import. Clearly, human existence is experiencing profound shifts of consciousness…. As one struggles to make sense of these recent events…McFadden offers substantive insight and hope. Further, he speaks to the power of individuals to address the overwhelming and complex problems facing us today—locally as well as globally.”

Odyssey Magazine on Legend of the Rainbow Warriors:“I urge everyone on the spiritual path to read this small yet exceptionally powerful book.”
