Wendell Berry on Farming and American Culture

The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture

San Francisco: Sierra Club Books, 1977. First printing. Hardcover. Tall octavo. xii, 228 pages. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket.

Berry's brilliant examination of the evolution of American farming in the context of culture and ecology. He challenges the "get big or get out" philosophy that has dramatically changed farming and unsettled its communities. Argues that in turning the time-hallowed act of food production into a corporate exercise in maximum production, we have become estranged from the land.
