Overview

For more than 40 years, Willie Nelson has been a national treasure, contributing many memorable songs to our musical canon. His impact, however, extends far beyond the scope of his music. A champion of family farms, Nelson has helped mobilize support for the American farmer, both as a founder of Farm Aid and more recently as one of the nation's most knowledgeable and recognized advocates of the use of biodiesel—a clean-burning, renewable fuel made from vegetable oils or animal fats. In this funny and inspirational book, Nelson confronts our dependency on foreign oil as a source of energy. Through facts, stories, and interviews with everyday Americans, he explains the benefits of biodiesel as an alternative fuel that not only drastically reduces carbon dioxide emissions, but also may help save our family farms.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"The Red-Headed Stranger" has grayed, but country singer Willie Nelson can still warble with the best. In the past two decades, this Texas-born crooner has reformed his "outlaw country" image and become an influential supporter of family farms and energy reform. In On the "Clean" Road Again, he describes the numerous benefits of biodeisel, a vegetable oil-based fuel alternative that he believes would be a godsend for family farmers.
