Review From User :

Another gem of a book by Wendell Berry (and illustrated by Wesley Bates). 8 poems about farming, and another short story (otherwise uncollected) about the Port Royal community. I found it in a bookstore, and savored it in about 45 minutes. It is a tactile experience as well as a visual and reading experience. The poetry uses male and female as metaphors for the farming experience--perhaps too traditional for some people's tastes. But a meditation on farming that we consumers would do well to share. The short story reads like a quiet sermon, but is a set-up for a one-liner at the end. (The cover of my hardback book is actually the cover Goodreads displayed for the kindle edition.) Thanks, Mr. Berry, once more.
