The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture

The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture

by Wendell Berry

Since its publication by Sierra Club Books in 1977, The Unsettling of America has been recognized as a classic of American letters. Wendell Berry argues that good farming is a cultural development and spiritual discipline, while today’s agribusiness, however, takes farming out of its cultural context and away from families. As a result, we as a nation are more estranged from the land as a whole, and from the intimate knowledge, love, and care of it.
