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." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the 3rd copy of this book I have owned. I keep giving them away to others that I feel should read it. Wendell Berry is a master essayist and writes about common sense observations concerning the preservation of our world and our lives.

I bought this book specifically to read one particular chapter recommended by another author. It was worth it.
