About the book:
The clock is ticking . . . and the winds of change are blowing!
With the planet in peril and people struggling to survive, it's all hands on deck for the Dandelion Insurrection.
As natural - and human-made - disasters strike, the dandelions organize creative solutions all across the country: people-powered relief efforts, mutual aid groups, cooperative programs, community-wide potlucks, tool sharing, resilience plans, and more. Zadie Byrd Gray and Charlie Rider crisscross the United States, tracking down these hopeful and inspiring stories. Before long, a powerful shift starts growing in this fertile soil of love and resistance. Fed up with the lack of compassion in the halls of power, the dandelions launch real democracy projects in neighborhoods and communities, workplaces, schools, businesses, social clubs, and beyond.
But as ordinary people solve their problems without politicians, the rich and powerful fight back. The wealthy plot to thwart them. The corporations try to stall them. The politicians race to block them. When a megachurch preacher launches a doomsday mission to stop them, the Dandelion Insurrection faces a choice that threatens everything they stand for.
Winds of Change is a story like no other, a tale of resistance and resilience, hopeful and eerie all at once. The living Earth rises up for justice. The debts of the past come due. Teens and elders alike rebel for life and the future. With courage and love, the Dandelion Insurrection must navigate fires and floods to rise from the ashes and bloom in the wreckage. But they must act swiftly, for the clock is ticking . . . and the winds of change are blowing
