The World-Ending Fire

The Essential Wendell Berry




Introducing the life-changing writings of the visionary farmer, essayist and poet Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry is 'something of an anachronism'. He began his life as the old times and the last of the old-time people were dying out, and continues to this day in the old ways: a team of draft horses and a pencil are his chosen working tools. This book is the unique product of a life spent farming the fields of rural Kentucky, and the rich, intimate knowledge of the place and its history cultivated by this work.

In a time when our relationship to the natural world is ruled by the reckless waste and greed of unbridled consumerism, Wendell Berry speaks out to defend the land we live on, imploring readers to return to the local landscapes that provide our cultural heritage, our history, our home.
