Summary When Logsdon realised that he experienced the same creative joy from farming as he did for writing, he suspected that agriculture itself was a form of art. Thus began his search for the origins of the artistic impulse in the agrarian lifestyle. This book is the culmination of his journey, his friendships with farmers and artists driven by the urge to create.
