Overview

A celebration of Farm Aid's 20th anniversary-a beautifully designed treasure documenting the struggles and contributions of family farmers in America and the more than 200 American artists who have played on the Farm Aid stage.

When Willie Nelson organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985, he hoped it would be a one-time event that would ensure the continued survival of the national treasure upon which our country was founded: the independent family farmer.

But two decades later, the nation is still losing an average of 330 family farms per week. And the annual Farm Aid concert, which has helped to raise more than $26 million to keep family farmers on their land, is now the longest running benefit concert in history. To commemorate this landmark and to call renewed attention to the importance of where, how, and by whom our food is produced, Farm Aid has put together this volume.

Essays, interviews, poems, song lyrics, and fictional excerpts mix with more than 200 color and black-and-white photographs, including shots of farmland and farmers, as well as never-before-seen pictures of Farm Aid performers, from the late Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison to Bob Dylan and Bonnie Raitt. Among the many contributors are writers Eric Schlosser and Howard Zinn; performers Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris; photographers Paul Natkin and Ebet Roberts; and Farm Aid board members Neil Young, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, and Willie Nelson.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Singer Willie Nelson organized the 1985 Farm Aid concert as a one-time event designed to ensure the survival of the American independent family farm. Two decades later, this annual event is still thriving and is now the longest running benefit concert in history. This large format pictorial performs a double function: It commemorates a day of entertainment that has become an American tradition and it honors that endangered species, the independent American farmer. Contributors to this grand assemblage include writers Eric Schlosser and Howard Zinn; performers Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris; photographers Paul Natkin and Eb Roberts; and Farm Aid board members Neil Young, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, and, of course, Willie Nelson. A keeper keepsake.
