9780865474376: What Are People For?: Essays

In the twenty-two essays collected here, Wendell Berry, whom The Christian Science Monitor called “the prophetic American voice of our day,” conveys a deep concern for the American economic system and the gluttonous American consumer. Berry talks to the reader as one would talk to a next-door neighbor: never preachy, he comes across as someone offering sound advice. He speaks with sadness of the greedy consumption of this country’s natural resources and the grim consequences Americans must face if current economic practices do not change drastically. In the end, these essays offer rays of hope in an otherwise bleak forecast of America's future. Berry’s program presents convincing steps for America’s agricultural and cultural survival.

From AudioFile:

These essays convey a deep concern for the American economic system and the gluttonous American consumer. In a country drawl that is the essence of the endangered American farmer, Berry talks to the listener as one would talk to a next-door neighbor. Never preachy, he comes across as someone offering sound advice. He speaks sadly at the greedy consumption of this country's natural resources and the grim consequences Americans must face if current economic practices do not change drastically. Through his eloquent reading of his nature prose, Berry offers rays of hope in an otherwise bleak forecast of America's future. Berry's program presents convincing steps for America's agricultural and cultural survival. M.P.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
