Chloe, July 1, 2009 (view all comments by Chloe)
A remarkable collection of essays speaking about the many virtues of returning to agrarian ethics. Explains agrarianism from a variety of liberal arts, and then shows the ways agrarian values can help environmental and social justice causes. This was such an inspiring book for why farms still matter; for why the preservation rural land is as important as the revitalization of urban and suburban town; why agrarianism cannot either be overly idealized or become marginalized as a "lesser" way of life.
