""This is one of the great classics of the organic farming movement. This legacy ought to be better remembered and understood." --Wes Jackson, author of Becoming Native to This Place" --
""Howard realized decades ago that chemical fertilizers and synthetic herbicides and pesticides deplete the soil, which leads to public health problems, including disease and environmental destruction... Thankfully, the University Press of Kentucky has recently reprinted Howard's 'The Soil and Health.' Originally published in 1945, the book largely inspired out modern-day organic movement. The time has come to re-think Howard's words, especially in light of recent research showing what's in organically grown food might matter as much as the missing synthetic pesticide and herbicide residues." -- Melinda Hemmelgarn, Columbia (MO) Daily Tribune" --
""A no-jargon, no-ostentation, no-fooling-around book that is as relevant as it was when it was first published in 1947. If some of us can take from it that the basic concepts or organic agriculture are timeless -- simple and "organic" -- then this reprint has done its job." --Claus Sproll, Lilipoh" --
