Happy Earth Day, everyone! I've been seeing a lot of quotes by Wendell Berry today and thought perhaps it might be a good time to check out some of his essays.

I'm nominating The Gift of Good Land: Further Essays Cultural and Agricultural as a result!

Pam Kennedy | 78 comments I am happy to second Wendell Berry' s Gift of the Good Land.

message 5: by Ray (new)

Ray Zimmerman | 637 comments I nominate Blue Meridian by Peter Matthiessen.

I would like to nominate The Journal, 1837-1861

with the idea of reading and posting and discussing entries that strike us- so perhaps no reading the entire book cover to cover. This is a one vol and available copy that compresses the 12 vols of Thoreau's notebooks.

Graeme I would like to nominate Driven to Extinction: The Impact of Climate Change on Biodiversity

These kinds of books are much needed to understand climate change's impact on the environment.

Sorry, Sher and Graeme, but the poll is already up for May. Would you like me to add your nominations to the June vote next week?

Yes I would like that Becky- if you would not mind. Sorry, I thought I was in the time frame. :)

Graeme Hi Becky, I thought I was in the time frame as well. I would appreciate it if you added my nomination to the June Vote. Thanks!
