Dad, We’re Monsanto, March Against Monsanto, and Our Transcon Run

When I was a teenager, if you had told me that I’m like my dad, I would have said you were crazy. But as the years have passed, I’ve come to realize it’s true. And now that Dad’s gone, I’m grateful for the similarities.


Beyond the shared physical traits—bulging muscles, fine features, and sizzling sex appeal—Dad and I both honed in on a chosen subject, spending our time writing, studying, sharing, and sometimes annoying anyone within earshot.

Dad was passionate about living in harmony with the scriptures he spent his life studying. That and gardening.

I’m passionate about living in harmony with the environment and with others. That and eating the foods produced in gardens like my dad’s.

Dad wrote a book that continues to bless people’s lives today. And now I’ve written a book that I hope will do the same.

We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World, Lie After Lie is a wake up call to the world, exposing Monsanto’s favorite lies with thoroughly documented facts, illustrations, and photographs, including dozens of photos from citizens around the world as they captured the passion of the first March Against Monsanto. (Thanks to everyone who contributed photos!!!)

We’re Monsanto is also the perfect book to introduce your friends and family to the subject of genetically modified foods.

That’s especially cool with We’re Monsanto because the Kindle version includes full color photos and illustrations.

As you might imagine, the biotech/chemical industry is not fond of people who share the truth about their products, poisons, and lies. And they employ their expertise at lying to discredit anyone and anything that cuts into the bottom line.

On a final note, Dad saw the first proof of the book before he passed away on September 21, 2013. It is my privilege to dedicate We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World, Lie After Lie to my dad.

“Thanks, Dad, for growing and
freely sharing your garden.
We honor your memory.”

We’re excited to share We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World, Lie After Lie with the country and the world as we run across the U.S.A. Whether you donate for our run or buy We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World, Lie After Lie, we deeply appreciate your support and we commit to give our transcon run our best effort.

We’re running the country to stop Monsanto from running the country!
