Miriam Horn: Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman Reading

Author Miriam Horn will be at Fact & Fiction Books at 2:00 PM for a reading and signing of her book Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman.

The story of a huge, largely hidden, and entirely unexpected conservation movement in America

Unfolding as a journey down the Mississippi River, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the stories of five representatives of this stewardship movement: a Montana rancher, a Kansas farmer, a Mississippi riverman, a Louisiana shrimper and a Gulf fisherman. In exploring their work, family histories and the essential geographies they protect, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman challenges pervasive and powerful myths about American and environmental values.

Then, from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, Miriam will be on hand at The Roxy Theater for a screening of the movie version of Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman. Face & Fiction will be on hand to sell books at that event as well. A discussion will follow the screening.

"Conservation and capitalism can peacefully co-exist . . . "

Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman is narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw and directed by Oscar-nominee Susan Froemke and Emmy-winner John Hoffman. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January.
