About this book

Michael White, a seed merchant and fourth generation farmer, had a good life on Alabama's Sand Mountain. But it disintegrated into a nightmare soon after he spotted a man from Monsanto spying on him.

In short order, White was sued by Monsanto for patent infringement regarding its genetically modified seeds and threatened with financial ruin. Refusing to buckle, he chose to fight. And that's when the conglomerate's spies – using tactics that would embarrass the KGB – decided to teach him a lesson he would never forget.

A classic David vs. Goliath saga, this is a testament to the indomitable human spirit and phenomenal courage one person can muster when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds. It's also a cautionary tale about the future and safety of our food supply.
