Standing by Words
The essays of Wendell Berry are an extended conversation about the life he values; sustainable agriculture, a connection to place, the miracle of life, and the interconnectedness of all things. The existence of this life is dependent on our devotion to preserving it, an emotional proximity to the land that is slipping away from us.
"Berry is a philospher, poet, novelist, and an essayist in the tradition of Emerson and Thoreau....Like Thoreau, he marches to a different drummer, a drummer we would do well to be aware of." -San Francisco Chronicle
