You can become a part of the community that publishes The Dandelion Insurrection!

The Grapes of Wrath, 1984, The Jungle . . . in times of crisis, visionary authors write passionate rallying cries for justice and change. It takes courageous people to publish their books. Together, they can change the world. Now it's our turn.

Let's tell a story of love and revolution!

"When fear is used to control; love is how we rebel!"

From the desk of Rivera Sun comes a novel about the refusal of the human heart to submit to destructive authority. 

"In a time that looms around the corner of today, in a place on the edge of our nation."

Under a gathering storm of tyranny, Zadie Byrd Gray whirls into the life of Charlie Rider and asks him to become the voice of the Dandelion Insurrection. With the rallying cry of life, liberty, and love, Zadie and Charlie fly across America leaving a wake of revolution in their path. Passion erupts. Danger abounds. The lives of millions hang by a thin thread of courage, but in the midst of the madness, the golden soul of humanity blossoms . . . and miracles start to unfold!

"The Dandelion Insurrection is as small as baking bread in your oven, and as large as bringing down dictators."

The Dandelion Insurrection is the story of nonviolent revolution in the United States. This book offers through its story many tools and strategies developed by countless leaders throughout history, including Gandhi, Dr. King, Cesar Chavez, and Professor Gene Sharp. From marches to cazerolazo pot-and-pan protests to strikes to Victory Gardens for the People; the Dandelion Insurrection shares ideas that have changed the world. (You can see a sneak peak of the book in our gallery!)

"Be like the dandelions, spring up in intolerable soils, dare to stand up against violence, and blossom into love!"

"A masterpiece; wild adventure you hope will never end!"

Calling All Dandelions! Read the book and spread the word!
