"In Power County, Idaho, all hell is about to break loose. Meet Yumi Fuller: Nicknamed Yummy, and as a girl she was. Even in a biblically severe environment, like Power County, Idaho. Until she was fifteen, she ran away from home. From her parents, Momoko and Lloyd Fuller. From her best friend; and from the man who had been her first lover. Now, twenty-five years and three kids later, this single mother and wayward daughter is about to return home to the fold.".

"...Lloyd and Momoko Fuller. Lloyd once ran the largest potato operation in Power County until a weak heart forced him to downsize. Momoko, his Japanese wife, is a gardener who can cause even barren land to bloom. After a lifetime of careful propagation, they have begun to feel the ravages of time." "...Case Quinn. The girl who stayed behind. Married a farmer, Will; survived cancer, took care of everything - including Momoko and Lloyd. But enough is enough.".

"...Elliot Rhodes. Former hippie and history teacher - now he's a PR flak working for a sleek Washington, D.C.-based firm that spins for agribusiness. But he's got a problem with potatoes - and a little difficulty with grass-roots resistance - which threaten to send him back to the last place on earth he wants to be.".

"...The Seeds of Resistance. A rollicking band of environmentalist muckrakers who travel the U.S. in their "Spudnik," a camping car, biofueled by french-fry oil, heisted from a highway McDonald's. They're on their way to where the action is, in their terms: a teeming community of spud farmers and all-American folks; and a place on the cusp of change, where neither potatoes nor much of anything else can remain as they have been."--BOOK JACKET.

Work Description

From the author of My Year of Meats—a dramatic story of a prodigal daughter's homecoming to a heartland of genetically modified cropsMy Year of Meats, Ruth Ozeki’s delicious debut novel, won a devoted following and was hailed by critics as inventing a new genre: the “eco-saga.” Now, Ozeki takes us to the heart of the potato farming industry. When Yumi Fuller returns to her hometown after a twenty-five-year absence, she comes face to face with an old friend, her aging parents, and her conflicted past—as well as the “Seeds of Resistance,” a rollicking environmentalist group that finds trouble wherever they plant themselves. With a quirky cast of characters and a keen eye for the vicissitudes of corporate life, political resistance, youth culture, aging baby boomers, and globalization, as well as the beauty of seeds, roots, and all growing things, All Over Creation offers something for just about everyone.
