AMANDA GORSKI — COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALD

In "Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution," author Doug Fine embarks on a humorous yet rigorous journey to meet the people who are testing, researching and pioneering hemp's applications for the 21st century. He will discuss his book at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at Village Books, 1200 11th St.

From Denver, where Fine hitches a ride in a hemp-powered limo; to Asheville, N.C., where hempcrete-insulated houses are sparking a housing boom; to eastern Colorado, where farmers look to hemp to restore their economy, Fine learns how the misunderstood plant can help end dependence on fossil fuels, heal soils, and raise more taxable revenue than its smokeable relative.
