The Gift of Good Land  Further Essays Cultural & Agricultural, Berry, Wendell
1 Berry, Wendell The Gift of Good Land Further Essays Cultural & Agricultural
Sand Francisco North Point Press 1981 0865470529 / 9780865470521 Softcover Very Good- 
Unmarked. Probably never been read. Spine edge is slightly sun faded. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. In the twenty-four essays of this collection, Well Berry stresses the carefully modulated harmonics of indivisibility in culture and agriculture, the interdepence, the wholeness, the oneness, of man, animals, the land, the weather, and the family. To touch one, he shows, is to tamper with them all.Here he continues issues first raised in The Unsettling of America; the problems addressed there are still with us and the solutions no nearer to hand, Mr. Berry writes of his journeys to the highlands of Peru, the deserts of southern Arizona, and the Amish country to study traditional agricultural practices. He writes of homesteading, tools and their uses, horses and tractors, family work, land reclamation, diversified land use.In the title essay Mr. Berry draws parallels between the Christian notion of stewardship and the Buddhist doctrine of "right livelihood." He develops the compelling argument that the "gift" of good land has strings attached: the recipient has it only as long as he practices responsible stewardship.; 7.90 X 5 X 0.90 inches; 281 pages
