Fukuoka’s inspiring and internationally best-selling book, "The One-Straw Revolution", was first published in English in 1978. In this book, Fukuoka described his philosophy of natural farming and why he came to farm the way he did. "One-Straw" was a huge success in the West, and spoke directly to the growing movement of organic farmers and activists seeking a new way of life. For years after its publication, Fukuoka traveled around the world spreading his teachings and developing a devoted following of farmers seeking to get closer to the truth of nature.

"Sowing Seeds in the Desert" presents Fukuoka’s plan to rehabilitate the deserts of the world using natural farming, including practical solutions for feeding a growing human population, rehabilitating damaged landscapes, reversing the spread of desertification, and providing a deep understanding of the relationship between human beings and nature. Fukuoka’s message comes right at the time when people around the world seem to have lost their frame of reference, and offers us a way forward.
