About the book:

In the twenty-two essays collected here, Wendell Berry, whom The Christian Science Monitor called the prophetic American voice of our day, conveys a deep concern for the American economic system and the gluttonous American consumer. Berry talks to the reader as one would talk to a next-door neighbor: never preachy, he comes across as someone offering sound advice. He speaks with sadness of the greedy consumption of this countrys natural resources and the grim consequences Americans must face if current economic practices do not change drastically. In the end, these essays offer rays of hope in an otherwise bleak forecast of America's future. Berrys program presents convincing steps for Americas agricultural and cultural survival.
