Harvest Heat reveals how modern agriculture feeds hungry people. Something magical happens in 1950 during wheat harvest when one war veteran returns home. He struggles with civilian life after fighting from Utah Beach to Berlin. Despite horrible battle memories he gains new strength by keeping his promise to help starving people get food. He meets a young woman who teaches in a Kansas high school. The Kansas moon's white light fires the passion of these young lovers. She helps him adjust to being home from the war. In the summer heat fueled by the aroma of ripening wheat their carnal love exposes her dark secrets. He helps her fight the trauma of a brutal teenage attack. These young lovers face many challenges. War in Korea drives grain prices higher as American soldiers battle hordes of an advancing enemy. By helping farmers lobby for mutual goals and supporting the leaders of huge farm co-ops they establish a giant agricultural business on the lonely prairie where Indians and buffalo once roamed. With friends from Las Vegas they gamble and gain new wealth by trading grain commodity futures. But only 55 years later one of America's largest farmer-owned cooperatives is bankrupt. Harvest Heat explains the intricate political relationships of people who helped build a multi-billion dollar agribusiness empire. They now struggle to keep their family farms that supply most of America's food. Harvest Heat tells how much of America's political influence comes from citizens in small towns. In the vibrant world of agribusiness these Midwestern folks clash with big corporations and crooked politicians who crave more power and money.

About the Author:

Phil Young's family operated a large wheat farm in Western Kansas located about 40 miles west of Phillipsburg. They lived near a railroad spur line and Phil often worked at a nearby grain elevator. Phil left his Norton County home in 1954 to study agricultural journalism at Kansas State University. During one summer he worked for K-State Agronomy scientists helping conduct field trials and chemical tests on crops. Some of his classes included work at the K-State flour mill. In K-State's Journalism School Phil served on the campus newspaper staff. He worked for the Kansas Crop Improvement Association developing bulletins and other technical materials that supported farmers who sold certified seed. While at K-State Phil met Mary who majored in home economics education. Mary was a pioneer in testing microwave cake baking. Phil and Mary got married after graduating from K-State. They spent their first summer together helping promote IMCA auto races at state and county fairs in the Midwest. That same year the Capper's Farmers magazine published a story Phil wrote about working his way through college. In 1959 the Young's moved to Liberty, Mo. Phil worked for 36 years at Farmland Industries in Kansas City. During this period Farmland grew from a regional cooperative with annual sales of about $200 million to more than $12 billion. Phil worked in several Farmland administrations including public relations, internal auditing, grain accounting, and chemical sales. In Liberty the Young's have been active in various civic and political activities. Phil served two terms as Liberty's City Auditor and helped bring that city under a city manager system of government. Mary worked several years for the Liberty School District and retired in 2001. The Young's have a son and daughter and two grandchildren. Visit this Harvest Heat website for more information. http://harvestheat.org
