These eleven essays, selected by the author from five previous collections, provide us with a single volume tracing Mr. Berry's desire "to make myself responsibly at home in this world and in my native and chosen place." Essays are drawn from The Long-Legged House, The Hidden Wound, The Unforeseen Wilderness, A Continuous Harmony, and The Unsettling of America. A new essay, "The Making of a Marginal Farm," forms the coda, unifying "what I value most in the world: the life and health of the earth, the peacefulness of human communities and households."
