In six compelling essays, Wes Jackson lays the foundation for a new farming economy grounded in nature's principles and nurtured in small towns and rural communities. Exploding the tenets of industrial agriculture, Jackson, a respected advocate for sustainable practices, a MacArthur and Pew fellow, and the founder of The Land Institute, seeks to integrate food production with nature in a way that sustains both.
Wes Jackson is the president of the Land Institute and former professor at Kansas Wesleyan and California State universities. He is the author of several books, including "Rooted in the Land: Essays on Community and Place," "Becoming Native to This Place," and "Altars of an Unhewn Stone,"
