Overview

Begun in 1941 as an outgrowth of Friends of the Land, the journal The Land was an attempt by editor Russell Lord to counteract -- through education, information, and inspiration -- the rampant abuse of soil, water, trees and rivers. But for all its seriousness of mission, The Land was a stimulating mix of fact and charm. It included literature, philosophy, art, and the practical observations of farmers and conservation workers, to encourage small farmers to understand and apply conservation principles to their lands. This anthology, a fascinating mosaic, compiled from the 13 years of The Land tells in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and philosophy the story of how we changed from a nation of small farms to the agribusiness we have today. Among the 40 authors included are conservation and literary giants such as Aldo Leopold, E. B.White, Louis Bromfield, Paul Sears, Allan Patton and Wallace Stegner.

Meet the Author

Nancy P. Pittman, formerly of Island Press, and Wes Jackson read and sorted through 52 issues of an old quarterly conservation publication called "The Land", which had been published from 1941 until 1954, the result being From The Land. Putting together this anthology had become a labor of love for them, so that we all may have a chance "to sample some of the best writing to come out of this most tragic era in the history of American agriculture."
