All of Berry's beliefs are here: fidelity to one's place on earth, to one's community and the threads that bind it together , to posterity and forebears, to traditions, to the language and its regional variances, to the virtues of hard work, thrift, simplicity, families, neighborliness, raising/eating good food, and 'living right on'. The language of this first person narrative is true, spare, and clear. The chapter about Okinawa was a mild diversion, but understandbly so, and it certainly accentuates some of Berry's themes. Interesting that Berry credits Eugene Sledge's memoirs, which got a lot of air time in the recent Ken Burns documentary on World War II. I have a master's degree in English Lit,and must say Hannah Coulter is one of the best books I've ever read.

Wendell Berry does not disappoint. I'd not read one of his books in several years...this one gives you respite from much of contemporary fiction with its honest portrayal of loving, hard working, and wonderfully appealing people living in community. Hannah is s role model for how I'd want to live and be. The world Berry writes about is seldom found any more. But it's worth taking time out to read about it.
