Nature as Measure: The Selected Essays of Wes Jackson

Wes Jackson

October 2011

In Nature as Measure, a collection of Jackson’s essays from 'Altars of Unhewn Stone' and 'Becoming Native to This Place', these ideas of land conservation and education are written from the point of view of a man who has practiced what he’s preached and proven that it is possible to partially restore much of the land that we’ve ravaged. Wes Jackson lays the foundation for a new farming economy, grounded in nature’s principles and located in dying small towns and rural communities. Exploding the tenets of industrial agriculture, Jackson seeks to integrate food production with nature in a way that sustains both.
