Overview

Surviving Ourselves: The Evolution of Community, Education, and Agriculture in the 21st Century by Eric Herm

Surviving Ourselves is about the vital relationship between Mother Nature and the Human Spirit. Herm reveals their parallel behavior-how one affects the other in the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our daily lives. In much of our human activity, including our intensive agricultural systems and many ill-conceived business and political policies, this relationship has become fragmented, affecting the attitudes and expectations of all involved. Through his own personal experiences and poetry, as well as the inspiring stories of others, this fourth-generation farmer relays a message of revolution and evolution that starts within ourselves. The resulting transition will help humanity adopt a more sustainable paradigm of existence by embracing Nature rather than inhibiting the natural flow of life on this planet.

About the Author

Eric Herm was raised on a cotton farm near Ackerly, W. Texas. Herm left the farm to pursue other interests, traveling extensively through America, Mexico, Europe and Northern Africa. Witnessing various lifestyles, personalities and cultures helped open his mind to endless possible means by which to live a richer, more fulfilling life. Herm then returned back to the land that has been in his family for nearly a century to start his life as a farmer all over again.
