Publisher's Synopsis

Going beyond the rudiments of biology, the authors demonstrate that the inherent life force woven through all plants, stones, soil, water, and air is central to our survival, and our relationship to the soil is of vital importance to our future.


"Tompkins and Bird go well beyond explaining how agricultural chemicals are poisoning our soil, our food and us. From the Himalayas to the Blue Ridge Mountains, an emerging breed of farmers are kicking the chemical habit and going organic."       ~Boston Herald

"So long as one feeds on food from unhealthy soil, the spirit will lack the stamina to free itself from the prison of the body."     ~Rudolf Steiner


“No creature, not even swine, befouls its nest with such abandon as does Homo sapiens, poisoning his habitat with fiendish concocted chemicals and their deadly toxic waste…That the earth is ailing—almost beyond repair—was clear enough as early as 1912 to Nobel Prize winner Dr. Alexis Carrel…Today soils are tired, overworked, depleted, sick, poisoned by synthetic chemicals. Hence the quality of food has suffered, and so has health.”
