Publisher's Summary

Farmer, ecologist, and writer Berry provides some rich and fertile ground for recreating life and culture. He speaks of enduring values, the wholeness of life and the interdependence of all creatures, especially humankind. Berry's self-discipline, ethical sense and human compassion come through as he leads us from the microcosm of his Kentucky hill farm to the macrocosm of a sane and reasoned planetary vision based on personal integrity, faithfulness, and love. Wendell Berry is the author of many books including Standing By Words (North Point Press 1983), The Gift of Good Land (North Point Press 1981), Collected Poems: 1957-1982 (North Point Press 1985), Nathan Coulter (North Point Press 1985), What People Are For ( 1991), The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry (Shoemaker & Hoard 2003), and The Way of Ignorance: And Other Essays (Shoemaker & Hoard 2006).

Old Interview without the usual Berry inspiration

If you’ve listened to books by Wendell Berry before, how does this one compare?

This interview is from the 80s and just doesn't have much to it. Berry's work usually has deep insights and perspectives I have never considered before. This interview does not.
