The Earth Knows My Name

 

  FOOD, CULTURE, AND SUSTAINABILITY in the GARDENS OF ETHNIC AMERICANS

 

Her first book of nonfiction, THE EARTH KNOWS MY NAME, tells the stories of fifteen ethnic Americans who transmit their cultural heritage through their gardens. Praised by readers as diverse as Dr. Jane Goodall and Barry Lopez, Klindienst’s eloquent and passionate rendering of the voices of ethnic peoples has been called “An original and exemplary kind of cultural study” by Geoffrey Hartman, Sterling Professor Emeritus of      English and Comparative Literature and co-founder of the Fortunoff Video Archive      for Holocaust Testimony at Yale, who characterizes her book as “…essential reading for      anyone seriously interested in the growing reality that an ancient ecological relationship,      imaginative and religious in its intensity, is slipping away.”
