From Library Journal
Corbett presents a potpourri of his beliefs and experiences as a former goat raiser, naturalist, activist, and Quaker whose wanderings have led him to many locations in the United States and Latin America. Goatwalking tells what it is like to be a goat raiser and pastoral nomad in the United States. Corbett describes the brutality he has witnessed as an activist in the sanctuary movement. In his search for solutions, he expounds upon human rights and civil disobedience in the spirit of Henry David Thoreau, Saul Alinsky, and Gandhi. Corbett peppers each essay with his view on how the practices of various religions relate to the subject he is discussing. He tends to overdo the religious aspects, which distracts readers from the essence of the essays. Nevertheless, there is a lot to learn in Goatwalking about raising goats, environmentalism, religion, and politics. Recommended for theology and political science collections.- Irwin Weintraub, Rutgers Univ. Libs., Piscataway, N.J.
