Out of the Earth: Civilization and the Life of the Soil

by

Out of the Earth: Civilization and the Life of the Soil Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the crucible of life, the source and final resting place of everything that grows, soil inspires reverence not only in the peasant who derives his daily bread from it, but also in the scientist who contemplates its meaning as the place where life and death meet and exchange vital energies. Out of the Earth is the culmination of the author's long career in conservation. This history of man's use and misuse of soil and water combines a description of the complex inner processes that form soil with a lyrical assertion of its powers and significance.

Synopsis:

A moving tribute to the physical and spiritual properties of nature's richestelement by one of the world's leading soil conservationists.

Synopsis:

"Daniel Hillel is a master at presenting complex scientific concepts in a dynamic, lively style. He also demonstrates unusual mastery in articulating the historical framework of the present crisis, providing a perspective on the peaks and valleys of the long-standing relationship between the soil and man."—Shawki Barghouti, Chief of Agriculture Production and Services, The World Bank
