Berry argues coherently that people are for work and maintaining the environment. A well argued ecological statement that everyone would benefit from reading. I sympathise with his Christian / Biblical roots, but the arguments stand up well on their own. They just stand up a lot better with a creator God in one's thinking.

Wendell Berry is a rare beed of person. He is a humble farmer with enormous wisdom and insite and he is not one to pull punches.
He began writing long ago and this is a collection of his essays put together in the 1980s. It is not dated. If anything his critism of the American 'anti-economy', the proliferation of waste and the degradation of soil is more relevant than ever.
In times when many are, finally, understanding that the World cannot continue in its speed and greed, Wendell Berry is salutary and almost essential reading.

For many years I have been a keen reader of Eugene Peterson. Peterson is a big Wendell Berry fan and it was his numerous references to Berry that drew me to this collection of essays. Not disappointed - really enjoyed the variety, tone and earthy wisdom in this book. Warmly recommended.
