Book reviews:

Building the Agricultural City is a vision of our food, agriculture and economic future that could not be more timely. As the cheap inputs—fossil fuels ,minerals, fossil water, and virgin soils—become increasingly depleted and degraded, the input intensive agriculture which has sustained our global food system for the past century will become unmanageable. The kind of bioregional food system that Wolf envisions will then become a necessary alternative for feeding human populations. And creating such a food system in the Driftless region now will serve as a “beacon of light” for other bioregions as this transformation takes place. —
Frederick Kirschenmann, Author of Cultivating an Ecological Conscience:Essays From a Farmer Philosopher

Bob Wolf loves America and he loves rural America with a rare passion. More importantly, he knows what rural America needs to be vital again–economically, culturally and socially. In this small book Bob has brought together a lifetime of creative and practical work to restore the vision of regionalism, which is the real hope of rural America. May his voice be heard!
