At Home in Nature: Modern Homesteading and Spiritual Practice in America


About the Book

Drawing from vivid firsthand accounts as well as from rich historical material, this gracefully written study of homesteading in America from the late nineteenth century to the present examines the lives and beliefs of those who have ascribed to the homesteading philosophy, placing their experiences within the broader context of the changing meanings of nature and religion in modern American culture. She also considers homesteading as a form of dissent from consumer culture, as a departure from traditional religious life, and as a practice of environmental ethics.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia.

This was interesting, but a bit too dense for the casual read I was looking for. It had lots of really interesting ideas about the implications of homesteading values - but I ultimately did not find myself returning to read more that often.

REAL HOMESTEAD LIFE !!!

Also, it was overdue. Jan 15, Tatiana rated it really liked it. This book is excellent and inspirational. It takes a unique viewpoint about the way nature is constructed in the eyes of homesteaders. I hope that my own scholarly work can be this engaging and relevant.
