Peak Moment 219: Novelist Dan Armstrong's "Prairie Fire" is a fast-paced thriller whose characters forge unlikely alliances to revolutionize the American food system. It's spearheaded by farmers squeezed by skyrocketing oil prices while marketeers get whopping price gains. This revolution is unlikely to succeed, yet... well, we won't spoil it! In Dan's "Taming the Dragon", climate change causes Chinese grain production to plummet, bringing the world to the brink. Dan illuminates the real-world backdrop behind both novels. His solution? Localize food production. Meet farmer Harry MacCormack with exciting results in central Oregon. [www.mudcitypress.com, sunbowfarm.org]
