Long before organic produce was available at your local supermarket. Wendell Berry was farming and writing with the purity of food in mind. For the last five decades, he has embodied mindful eating through his land practices and his writing. In recognition of Berry’s influence, Michael Pollan offers an introduction to this new collection. “To read the essays in this sparkling anthology”, he writes, “many of them dating back to the 1970s and 1980s, is to realize just how little of what we are saying and hearing today Wendell Berry hasn’t already said bracingly, before.” This compendium joins today’s bestsellers as essential reading for all who care about what they eat.
