* This book contains inspiring stories and actionable tips, not just about food but also food for thought on a whole range of topics that encourage you to become more resilient and healthier, and to increase eco-literacy in your children.
* This book makes it easy (and fun) to dig in and make a difference in your garden, your family, and your city.
* This book will make you think, laugh, possibly even cry, and definitely want to plant something (or even ride your bike for the first time in years, or make my famous Meal Muffins).
* This book chronicles a joy-based journey, and invites you along for the ride.
* This book puts a stake in the ground about a particular place in the world at a particular time in history, what went wrong, and what one mom is doing to try to make things better (and what you can do, too).
* You will look around you differently as a result of reading this book, and you will feel, finally, a little bit of control in an increasingly chaotic world.Here is a recent review of Food for My Daughters, written by a well-known writer in Texas (whom I've never met in person) named Pamela Price. Here's an excerpt:
I love this book . . . The text is warm, witty, accessible, and engaging–just like all of Pattie’s writings. Written in a seasonal garden journal format, this memoir of motherhood and vittle raisin’ is also chockablock with tips, ideas and resources. It’ll go on my shelf next to Michael Pollan’s work and represent a Southern gal’s POV on a complicated set of issues related to food safety/security and well-being. (I think Pattie may be a transplant to the South, but we will claim her!)Here is the tweet sent out by the Southface Energy Institute yesterday:

If you could do me this favor, please take a moment and pass this post on via your blog, social media outreach, or over-the-fence or waiting-for-the-bus chats. You don't have to be a gardener (or farmer, as I was recently called in O: The Oprah Magazine) to benefit from the positive messages in this book.
I love this book. I wrote it for my daughters. And now I am excited to be able to finally share it with you, all over our FoodShed Planet, in the most affordable and easiest way.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of copies of Food for My Daughters, in all formats, will be donated to help grow food for those in need. In fact, it already has.
And, by the way, I do not yet have a Kindle. Reading a book is a very kinesthetic experience for me. In fact, I wrote about my "relationship" with books as a guest blogger on Better World Books' blog today, after I was invited to do so as a result of my Jamie post.
