Titles include eye-opening books like Stolen Harvest by Vanda Shiva and the practical guide Thyroid for Dummies by Dr. Alan L. Rubin. Cultural traditions are emphasized in You Eat What You Are: People, Culture and Food Traditions by Thelma Barer-Stein while Sandor Ellix Katz encourages us to take a walk on the wild side with Wild Fermentation.
Pioneers David & Gerda Foster’s book, A Year of Slow Food, keeps company with historical works like The History of Randolph Farm. Cookbooks like The Frugal Housewife, Dedicated to Those Who Are Not Ashamed of Economy (1929) by Lydia Maria Francis Child to The Grass Fed Gourmet (2004) by Shannon Hayes span the years.
The media section includes CDs, DVDs, videos and audio tapes featuring Sally Fallon lectures like “Why Butter is Better” and “The Oiling of America” and radio interviews with Mary Enig.
However, please note that the Weston A. Price Foundation does not endorse the content of every book in the library. We keep many titles of current and historical interest for reference.
To visit the Weston A Price Library call ahead for directions and hours. Materials are only available for use at the WAPF office and cannot be lent out. Bring a bag lunch, some crispy nuts, and plan to stay for a while!
