LaDuke is also known for her engagement with social issues and cultural awareness. Her recent book, Bountiful Harvest: From Land to Table from White Cloud Press, takes inspiration from her personal experience with agriculture workers. In 2010, LaDuke was invited to spend time with the men and women who harvest the orchard, vineyards, and farms in Southern Oregon. She listened to their stories and was inspired to create vibrant paintings that capture the spirit of the fields and orchards.
