Feeding our planet challenges mankind’s future on Earth. Worldwide population will likely reach 9.6 million by 2050 — if not more. National Geographic veteran photographer Jim Richardson offers a broad overview of the sources, problems and possible solutions to this daunting challenge. Drawing on twenty year’s coverage of agriculture subjects Richardson traces man’s food story beginning 10,000 years ago with the Neolithic revolution, how agriculture spread and eventually restructured the biosphere, where critical research and development is taking place, and who grows our food. His broad overview reaches one major conclusion: growing the food to feed humanity is the largest endeavor on the planet.
