Stanley Crawford

From his New Mexico mountain home, award-winning author Stanley Crawford writes about growing garlic and selling it.

"To dream a garden and then to plant it is an act of independence and even defiance to the greater world."--Stan Crawford

"Rich with respect for human toil. . . . detailing the healing and annealing aspect of the repetitive tasks that bring his crop to market in clearsighted, eloquent prose."


New York Times Book Review

"Crawford tells us what's right with American agriculture by telling us what's right in the life of one farmer who's found his place in the sun."


The Washington Post

"Superb, quiet. . . . a plainspoken wisdom."


The New Yorker
