Pastoral Song: A Farmer’s Journey by James Rebanks

Is “progress” always a good thing? James Rebanks shows us how dramatically farming has changed in just a few generations. Small, family-run operations have disappeared, only to be replaced by industrial monoliths focused entirely on producing as much inexpensive food as possible. With all eyes on the bottom line, the soul has disappeared from farming. How much does that matter? Pastoral Song may have you thinking twice before you eat your next meal. —Glenn

Shutter by Ramona Emerson

Indigenous photographer Rita Todacheene hears from the dead after documenting violent crime scenes. When the ghost of a victim demands justice, Rita has no choice but to put her own life on the line to solve the crime. More than a whodunnit, Shutter shows us the reality of growing up on a Navajo reservation and the familial love that can help us persevere despite the odds. —Glenn

Properties of Thirst by Marianne Wiggins

Is a sprawling city, where unfettered growth is a cultural hallmark, justified in taking water from a small, impoverished community? How far should a country at war go to protect itself from perceived threats? Set in the stark but picturesque Owens Valley, Properties of Thirst will leave you wondering just what it means to be “American.” If your recent book club discussions have been falling flat, this gem might turn things around. —Glenn
