Dirt: A Love Story
Edited by Barbara RichardsonCloth: $85.00
Who knew dirt could be a topic of such fascinating diversity?
A love song to the humble earth beneath our feet, this is nature writing at its best.
Dirt showcases an outstanding chorus of voices, allowing them to intertwine, resonate and amplify each other and build to a kind of lyrical crescendo that will leave readers eager to get out and get down in their own dirt, the lively soil that lives beneath all our feet.
—Story Circle Book Reviews
Many of the essays make it seem as if organic methods have only advantages and no drawbacks, and to love the soil is to embrace this belief. For this reason, the main contribution of the book is to allow readers to get to know the organic community on a more personal basis, and in this respect the book is a triumph.
—American Journal of Agricultural Economics
Add my name to the list of those who love to play in dirt, and know how much I love this anthology of vibrant voices celebrating, investigating, remembering the ways in which we are grounded in life, in memory, and in story by mud and dust. There is much here to laugh over, to learn about, to sing along with. Kick off your shoes, dig in your toes, and enjoy!
