This book deals with a life in the day of an editor.
Its focal point is 15 years, the single "moment" in time when the Hydra called education, economies and eco-farming came to one head as a publication called Acres USA. In his opening note, Phil Callahan says it is people like William Albrecht, Harold Willis, Lee Fryer and ‘Chuck’ Walters who tell us how to farm correctly.
But that all of their elegant work would come to naught without an unbound and free press to put the good works out.
This is the main function of Acres USA and its editor performs his task in a lucidly superb manner.
