"What we must think about is an agriculture with a human face".

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.
