Re-connecting to the land and living in harmony with the natural environment are the twin touchstones of this eloquent advocacy of sustainable agriculture by Jackson. He provides an abundance of reasons to re-view the farm, the farmer, and our "more technology is better" system of agriculture. Jackson argues that we are losing something precious when we allow agribusiness and real estate interests to swallow up the small farm, and that only by returning to nature's roots can we see a valid way out of the fossil fuel farm, which breeds costly high technology, ecological damage and bankrupt small farmers.
