The Humane Vision of Wendell Berry

 A striking contribution to the conversation that is conservatism


'“Help[s] those who do not know Berry, or know him only in one or two of his dimensions, to understand what this farmer, poet, essayist, and novelist has been about for the past four or five decades. [The book] makes wanting to read him, if not actually meet him, irresistible.”—The American Conservative“Wendell Berry is a wise, funny, rooted, radical, poetic, and practical sage whose life and work stand as a humane and joyful alternative to the arrogance, bellicosity, and hypermobility in modern America. The gems in this collection of essays do Mr. Berry justice—and they illume the path to a peaceful, humbler, better country.”—Bill Kauffman, author of Dispatches from the Muckdog Gazette“We stand much in the debt of Mitchell and Schlueter for shepherding into existence this thoughtful collection of essays, which display the remarkable breadth and depth that establish Berry as one of American history’s truly great, and most realistic, cultural critics.”—David L. Schindler, John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family '
