"Alex and Gale Jack have created one of the most exceptional and unique natural foods cookbooks we have encountered . . . Unlike many gourmet cookbooks that contain recipes with dauntingly long lists of ingredients, Amber Waves of Grain focuses on simplicity of ingredients as well as cooking methods. Many of the recipes contain no more than three or four ingredients. The emphasis is not on fancy foods with intricate processes but on ingredients that are whole, natural, and healthful . . . The Jacks demonstrate the simplicity of every day cooking in a way that reaches into one's heart and soul."

"Amber Waves of Grain is so much more than a cookbook . . . I felt both enlightened and entertained by the brilliant and sweeping explanation of diet "as the hidden mechanism of history" and the consequences for human and environmental health that should be taught in every school across the land. The selection of historic quotes from Thomas Jefferson to Kahlil Gibran and so many others makes this cookbook a great read." Meredith McCarty, author of Sweet and Natural
