Description

A classically trained opera singer and her husband, a former marine biologist, set out by train for a homestead they've purchased in rural Missouri, sight unseen. Meanwhile, a horticulturist, heir to the Great Migration that brought her grandmother to Detroit, and her husband, a product of the white flight from it, have turned to urban farming to revitalize the blighted city they both love. And near Missoula, Montana, a couple of longtime organic farmers navigate what it means to live and raise a family ethically. A work of immersive journalism steeped in a distinctively American social history and sparked by a personal quest, The Unsettlers traces the search for the simple life through the stories of these new pioneers. Captivating and clear-eyed, it dares us to imagine what a sustainable, ethical, authentic future might actually look like.
