Of the Land and the Spirit
Lord Northbourne (1896-1982) was a Renaissance man: a farmer, painter, Olympic rower, translator, and a widely respected author on both ecology and religion. His first book coined the term ",organic farming",, and he worked with E. F. Schumacher to bring greater awareness to ecological concerns. His subsequent writings include his concern for ecology along with an exploration of the nature of religion in the modern world. The present anthology is intended to illustrate the uncommon breadth and depth that characterize Lord Northbourne's writings. It includes selections from the fascinating correspondence between Lord Northbourne and Thomas Merton.
