Description

Since its publication in 1977, The Unsettling of America has been recognized as a classic of American letters. In it, Wendell Berry argues that good farming is a cultural and spiritual discipline. 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 - from the intimate knowledge, love, and care of it.

Sadly, his arguments and observations are more relevant than ever. Although “this book has not had the happy fate of being proved wrong,” Berry writes, there are people working “to make something comely and enduring of our life on this earth.” Wendell Berry is one of those people, writing and working, as ever, with passion, eloquence, and conviction.

The legacy is truth

This book is as accurate in its analysis and as cogent in its arguments as it ever was.
The proof is in the news today about world health and our response to pandemic disease.
While I don’t condemn the scientist or university with as much vehemence as the author I do abhor the dishonesty that seems baked in to the culture.
This book should be in everyone’s library who enjoys eating and health.

love the material, meh on the performance.

to start with, the material I found riveting timely and much-needed. to the degree that I have now purchased or ordered at least 16 more Wendell Berry publications books on collections. along with Joel salatin Gabe Brown Ray Archuleta and others these are topics readings and subjects with should be a part of any high School in most expecially higher education in agriculture.

As for the performance while extremely clear easy to understand I found the speakers voice at times reminiscent of a twilight zone intro which begins to grate. In particular, his consistent pronunciation of hummus (a spread made from chickpeas) as opposed to hummus (organic material in the soil, the first syllable sounding like -hu- in human rather than huh) extremely grating.

A tale that holds true almost half a century later

The choice of Nick Offerman as narrator was spot on, no better option exists in my opinion. Also as a first time Wendel Barry reader I am eager to look into his other works. This book brings forth many questions and plausible answers to where we may have lost our way. As a proffesional in the STEM field it has also allowed me to question my purpose and goals for my legacy.

Great Book

This book made me think a lot about where we are as people with agriculture. Nick Offerman’s narration was fun. I think the arguments made about work in this were very good. People do like to work hard and have accomplishments.
