520    "I am Not a Tractor! celebrates the courage, vision, and 
       creativity of the farmworkers and community leaders who 
       have transformed one of the worst agricultural situation 
       in the United States into one of the best. Susan Marquis 
       highlights past abuses workers suffered in Florida's 
       tomato fields: toxic pesticide exposure, beatings, sexual 
       assault, rampant wage theft, and even, astonishingly, 
       modern-day slavery. Marquis unveils how, even without new 
       legislation, regulation, or government participation, 
       these farmworkers have dramatically improved their work 
       conditions. Marquis credits this success to the immigrants
       from Mexico, Haiti, and Guatemala who formed the Coalition
       of Immokalee Workers, a neuroscience major who takes great
       pride in the watermelon crew he runs, a leading farmer/
       grower who was once homeless, and a retired New York State
       judge who volunteered to stuff envelopes and ended up 
       building a ground-breaking institution. Through the "Fair 
       Food Program" that they have developed, fought for, and 
       implemented, these people have changed the lives of more 
       than thirty thousand field workers. I Am Not a Tractor! 
       offers a range of solutions to a problem that is rooted in
       our nation's slave history and that is worsened by ongoing
       conflict over immigration"--|cPublisher's Web site.
