Fast food nation by Richard Linklater( Visual )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If it's true that we are what we eat, then how do we even know who we are? Don Anderson is trying to balance his search for the truth with an apparent desire not to do anything that might hurt his career. Raul and Sylvia, having crossed the border illegally, take up dangerous, stomach-turning jobs at the meat-processing plant. Amber is a teenage burger-slinger who wants to both change the world and get out of town. These two desires--to fight the system and to win by its rules--are not necessarily incompatible, though they may seem contradictory. Everyone has something to say, but hard ethical choices are set down by the logic of 21st-century consumer capitalism

From his days living in the Marquesas with his wife Liv, Thor suspected that the south Sea Islands had been settled by ancient South Americans from thousands of miles to the east. Despite his inability to swim and fear of water, Thor decides to prove his theory by sailing the legendary voyage himself. After replicating the design of an ancient raft in balsa wood, Thor and five fellow adventurers set sail from Peru. Their only modern equipment is a radio, and they take a parrot along for company. A natural leader, Thor uses the stars and the ocean's current to navigate the raft. During three dangerous months on the open sea, the crew encounters raging storms, sharks and all the dangers the ocean can muster. Thor and his crew are tested physically and mentally on this epic journey of courage, faith and friendship.--Container
