Foreword Reviews- "Optimism about scientific observations and what people can do to improve the environment makes this book inspiring. In Grass, Soil, Hope: A Journey through Carbon Country, Courtney White provides a compelling and practical account of how carbon--an essential element and building block of life--may hold the answer to many pressing issues. Smart land use that captures carbon in the soil can enhance the climate, plant and animal diversity, our waterways, the quality of our food, and our quality of life in general. An engaging storyteller, White describes farmers, ranchers, scientists, artists, and many "everyday" people who are putting these ideas into action. White has crafted a challenging, engaging narrative that will compel many readers to reconsider the link between our soil and the future of our planet."
