I picked up this book today,and finished it today. Personally this book stands for and resonates with, all I feel about the environment.
We can have both,productivity in farming and re establishment of wildlife and natural land as it was before the crazy notion that EVERYTHING must be cut down in order to have more,more,MORE!
We can reap from the land as long as we don’t rape it in the process! I immensely dislike saying the word rape but it fits the bill of taking something that doesn’t belong to you in the first place. Not listening to NO - this isn’t right. We are not owners of the land, the land is a being in itself, we are merely passing through and should tread lightly with balance and understanding.
