Narrator George Newbern's clear voice and captivating style work well with nonfiction. His storyteller's cadence suits the vibe of this audiobook, which is devoted to the personalities and ideas that evolved into the alternative food crusade. His close-up history includes the organic, food co-op, and back-to-the-land movements. Newbern's classic delivery enhances this exhaustive (sometime exhausting) study of how brown rice, tofu and tempeh came to prominence. The author has done a thorough job researching the stories of the often-quirky personalities--John Harvey Kellogg and Gayelord Hauser, Sylvester Graham and Adele Davis--and other icons of the counter-culture and alternative food worlds. Newbern vividly brings these stories to life. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
