Reviews

"Wendell Berry gives us an intimate portrayal of the mind and heart of rural America. His graceful prose is truthful and eloquent. His tone is reliable and steady, like a good rain, sober and serious--all this and at times he is so funny you have to stop and roll on the floor." --Bobbie Ann Mason

"This is the most complete--and the most powerful--vision of any American writer in my time. The stories of the Port William Membership are a delight, a goad, and a testament less to what was than to what could be. They will leave no reader unmoved and unchanged." --Bill McKibben
