Editorial Reviews

Review

"[B]efore people can live in harmony with their communities, or their spouses, or their topsoil, they need to be at peace with themselves, and that is Berry's main concern. We need to live in real places, not in the generalized lobbies that modern houses often are. We need to be at home in our bodies, too--not in the 'useless, weak' husks that we drag daily to the fluorescently cheerful 'health club, ' but a body that each day knows the 'elemental pleasures of eating and drinking and resting, of being dry while it is raining, of getting dry after getting wet, of getting warm after getting cold, of cooling off after getting hot.' Of being tired at sundown and at life's end feeling a great weariness ... like the lesser weariness that comes with day's end--a weariness that had been earned and was therefore accepted."
