|| Great Possessions
An Amish Farmer's Journal
by Wendell Berry
235 pages; 5 1/4" by 8 1/4"
Possessions is like taking a walk around David Kline's Amish
farm with him in every season. Through his simple, elegant prose,
Kline conveys the joy and splendor of not only observing the natural
world on his small farm, but of actually participating in nature's
perennial cycle. Kline and his family and brethren go beyond simply
coexisting with nature; they become stewards, shepherds, and ultimately
advocates for the gracefulness of working the land.
Celebrate the living
seasons on an Amish farm; hear bird sing while working in community,
David Kline's eloquent paean "announces on every page that
the world is good." -Wendell Berry
David Kline is Bishop of the Elm Grove East church.
