The Ant And The Grasshopper

Anita Chitaya has a gift; she can help bring abundant food from dead soil, she can make men fight for gender equality, and she can end child hunger in her village.

Now, to save her home from extreme weather, she faces her greatest challenge: persuading Americans that climate change is real.

Travelling from Malawi to California to the White House, she meets climate sceptics and despairing farmers. Her journey takes her across all the divisions shaping the US, from the rural-urban divide to schisms of race, class, and gender, to the thinking that allows Americans to believe they live on a different planet from everyone else.

It will take all her skill and experience to help Americans recognize, and free themselves from, a logic that is already destroying the Earth.
