Product Details


“Legacies of land and family reach across generations and continents in Jaclyn Moyer’s compelling more-than-memoir On Gold Hill. You will never bite into a piece of bread or visit your local farmers’ market in quite the same way again.”
—Meera Subramanian, author of A River Runs Again: India’s Natural World in Crisis, from the Barren Cliffs of Rajasthan to the Farmlands of Karnataka

“I will urge everyone I know to read On Gold Hill, a riveting and necessary book. Jaclyn Moyer deftly balances the global dilemma around farming and food production with a narrative of family discovery and reconciliation. Her book is intricate, meticulously researched, and sweetly tender. It brims with grace.”
—Debra Gwartney, author of I Am a Stranger Here Myself

On Gold Hill is clear-eyed and beautifully written, capturing the sincerity of the local and organic food movement even as it refuses, with good reason, to romanticize it. Moyer explores a series of connected histories—the evolution of wheat, the rise of the organic farming movement, and the displacement and migration of her own family—with insight and intelligence. This is, without question, the best memoir of farm and family I have ever encountered.”
—Claire Boyles, author of Site Fidelity
