Reviews

"Decades before the Green New Deal made headlines, Wendell Berry sounded the alarm about America's environmental crisis. . . . More than 40 years later, those observations are still timely and pertinent. They are also persuasive, because they reflect a common-sense approach rooted in experience, rather than partisan views. . . . Essential reading for those who want to understand how we arrived at this point in time, and how we can begin to shift our standards, priorities, and habits." --The Christian Science Monitor

"Seeing his arc in one place highlights both his complexity and his consistency. . . . Berry's essays serve as documents of the bewildering destruction in which our everyday lives involve us and as a testament to those qualities in people and traditions that resist the destruction." --The Nation
