520    Scientist/gardener Carol Deppe combines her passion for 
       gardening with newly emerging scientific information from 
       many fields--resilience science, climatology, climate 
       change, ecology, anthropology, paleontology, sustainable 
       agriculture, nutrition, health, and medicine. Here, Deppe 
       extends these principles with detailed information about 
       growing and using five keystone crops that are especially 
       important for anyone seeking greater self-reliance: 
       potatoes, corn, beans, squash, and eggs. This is both a 
       conceptual and a hands-on gardening book, suitable for 
       gardeners at all levels of experience. "Resilience" here 
       is broadly conceived, and encompasses a full range of 
       problems, from personal hard times to regional and global 
       disasters. In the end, though, this is an optimistic as 
       well as a realistic book.--From publisher description.
