The Unsettling of AmericaThe Unsettling of America
Culture and Agriculture
By Wendell Berry
Paperback, 236 pages
ISBN: 978-0-87156-877-9

Since its original publication in 1977, The Unsettling of America has been recognized as a classic of American letters. In it, Wendell Berry argues that good farming is a cultural development and spiritual discipline. But today's agribusiness takes farming out of its cultural context and away from families, and as a nation we are thus more estranged from the land - from the intimate knowledge, love, and care of it.

Sadly, as Berry notes in this edition, his arguments and observations are even more relevant than ever. We continue to suffer loss of community, the devaluation of human work, and the destruction of nature under an economics dedicated to the mechanistic pursuit of products and profits. Although "this book has not had the happy fate of being proved wrong," Berry writes, there are good people working "to make something comely and enduring of our life on this earth." Wendell Berry is one of those people, writing and working, as ever, with passion, eloquence, and conviction.

Wendell Berry - writer, poet, teacher, naturalist, and farmer - is the author of many notable works, including The Gift of Good Land; Sex, Economy, Freedom and Community; and Fidelity. He and his family live - and farm - in Port Royal, Kentucky.
