A Rich and Rewarding Journey is an admirable autobiographical account of the extraordinary career of Richard L. Ridgway. With humble beginnings in Texas and years of service in the Washington DC area, he continues to promote a broad understanding of agriculture as the most basic human endeavor. His experiences in bringing conflicting parties together are particularly noteworthy. His innate qualities were used to forge a policy, in the midst of conflict, that led to Beltwide Boll Weevil Eradication. Efforts related to pesticide regulation resulted in true cooperation between USDA and USEPA. Ridgway’s perception of how science can serve society was instrumental in founding the Charles Valentine Riley Memorial Foundation (RMF) and a unique partnership between RMF, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the World Food Prize Foundation. Anyone interested in commitment, inspiration, scientific knowledge, consensus building and agriculture, when broadly defined, should join Ridgway on his extended journey. Lloyd V. Knutson Agricultural Research Service U.S. Department of Agriculture (retired)
