Jules Pretty: THE EAST COUNTRY

An illustrated talk from a new book by Jules Pretty (to be published by Cornell University Press, 2017).

The East Country is almanac tales in wild valley and along salty shore, about change and attachment, rhythms within and across years; it is like no other place, yet it is every other place. Long ago, Aldo Leopold wanted a new ethic to think of the economy as the environment. Some could live without nature; he believed most should not. This illustrated lecture describes change and attachment, rhythms within and across years. Things are far from safe, yet the land can bring permanence.
