(From the publisher):
In Power County, Idaho, all hell is about to break loose.
Meet Yumi Fuller: Nicknamed Yummy, and as a girl she was. Even in a biblically severe environment, like Power County, Idaho. Until, when she was fifteen, she ran away from home. From her parents, Momoko and Lloyd Fuller. From her best friend; and from the man who had been her first lover. Now, twenty-five years and three kids later, this single mother and wayward daughter is about to return home to the fold.
…Lloyd and Momoko Fuller. Lloyd once ran the largest potato operation in Power County until a weak heart forced him to downsize. Momoko, his Japanese wife, is a gardener who can cause even barren land to bloom. After a lifetime of careful propagation, they have begun to feel the ravages of time.
…Cass Quinn. The girl who stayed behind. Married a farmer, Will; survived cancer, took care of everything—including Momoko and Lloyd. But enough is enough.
…Elliot Rhodes. Former hippie and history teacher-now he's a PR flak working for a sleek Washington, D.C.-based firm that spins for agribusiness. But he's got a problem with potatoes-and a little difficulty with grass-roots resistance-which threaten to send him back to the last place on earth he wants to be.
…The Seeds of Resistance. A rollicking band of environmentalist muckrackers who travel the U.S. in their "Spudnick," a camping car, biofueled by french-fry oil, heisted from a highway McDonald's. They're on their way to where the action is, in their terms: a teeming community of spud farmers and all-American folks; and a place on the cusp of change, where neither potatoes nor much of anything else can remain as they have been.
