Hannah Coulter is Wendell Berry’s seventh novel and his first to employ the voice of a woman character in its telling. Hannah, the now–elderly narrator, recounts the love she has for the land and for her community. She remembers each of her two husbands, and all places and community connections threatened by twentieth–century technologies. At risk is the whole culture of family farming, hope redeemed when her wayward and once lost grandson, Virgil, returns to his rural home place to work the farm.

"In Wendell Berry, the first publication devoted exclusively to the author, Andrew J. Angyal offers a comprehensive examination of Berry's entire career. Well organized and comprehensive in scope, the study considers Berry's complete body of work and features a chronology and the text of Angyal's 1991 interview with Berry." "Angyal characterizes Berry's work as an attempt to articulate and preserve the best in the agricultural tradition of the author's 1930s boyhood the rural world of the small landowners and tobacco farmers who were the last generation of skilled men to use their own hands to work the land. Angyal convincingly presents Berry's body of work as an ardent espousal of Thomas Jefferson's agrarian ideal of a nation of small farmers and reveals the reformist social and ecological agenda underlying Berry's literary vision. Angyal concludes that Berry's advocacy of traditional rural life is both balanced and sharpened with an informed ecological vision and deep understanding of the complex relationships among the individual, the family, the community, and the environment."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Every society expresses its fundamental values and hopes in the ways it inhabits its landscapes. In this literate and wide-ranging exploration, Eric T. Freyfogle raises difficult questions about America's core values while illuminating the social origins of urban sprawl, dwindling wildlife habitats, and over-engineered rivers. These and other land-use crises, he contends, arise mostly because of cultural attitudes that made sense on the American frontier but now threaten the land's ecological fabric. To support and sustain healthy communities, profound adjustments will be required. Freyfogle's search leads him down unusual paths. He probes Charles Frazier's novel Cold Mountain for insights on the healing power of nature and tests the wisdom in Wendell Berry's fiction. He challenges journalists writing about environmental issues to get beyond well-worn rhetoric and explain the true choices that Americans face. In an imaginary job advertisement, he issues a call for a national environmental leader, identifying the skills and knowledge required, taking note of cultural obstacles, and looking critically at supposed allies. Examining recent federal elections, he largely blames the conservation cause and its inattention to cultural issues for the diminished status of the environment as a decisive issue. Agrarianism and the Good Society identifies the social, historical, political, and cultural obstacles to humans' harmony with nature and advocates a new orientation, one that begins with healthy land and that better reflects our utter dependence on it. In all, Agrarianism and the Good Society offers a critical yet hopeful guide for cultural change, essential for anyone interested in the benefits and creative possibilities of responsible land use.
