Doug Fine

Doug_Fine_HeadshotDoug Fine is a comedic investigative journalist, solar-powered goat herder and bestselling author of Farewell, My Subaru, Too High to Fail, and, most recently, Hemp Bound, which provides a model for a locavore, post-prohibition hemp economy. Doug has been a tireless supporter of the re-emerging industrial hemp industry and looks forward to supporting the efforts of the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association.

In Hemp Bound:Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution, bestselling author Doug Fine embarks on a humorous yet rigorous journey to meet the men and women who are testing, researching, and pioneering hemp’s applications for the twenty-first century. From Denver, where Fine hitches a ride in a hemp-powered limo; to Asheville, North Carolina, where carbon-negative hempcrete-insulated houses are sparking a mini housing boom; to Manitoba where he raps his knuckles on the hood of a hemp tractor; and finally to the fields of east Colorado, where practical farmers are looking toward hemp to restore their agricultural economy—Fine learns how eminently possible it is for this misunderstood plant to help us end dependence on fossil fuels, heal farm soils damaged after a century of growing monocultures, and bring even more taxable revenue into the economy than its smokable relative.
