Through the use of lush, light-filled landscapes, intimate and intriguing portraits, and delicately detailed stories, this riveting and visually stunning work carries us across continents and around the globe to understand and comprehend the complexities of the human journey that encompasses fair trade.

A captivating storyteller with a deft eye for detail, author-photographer Éric St-Pierre has crafted a book that makes the story of fair trade, its implications and its limitations, clear to us. We learn about production methods, the effect fair trade has on peoples' lives, and the advantages and challenges of a trade option based on dialogue, transparency, and respect.

St-Pierre introduces the reader to the most common fair trade products — handicrafts, coffee, and cocoa, as well as the lesser known ones — shea butter, quinoa, and guarana. Along the way, we discover how far we have come and how far we still have to go.
