First published in 1972, â€œThink Littleâ€ is cultural critic and agrarian Wendell Berry at his best: prescient about the dire environmental consequences of our mentality of greed and exploitation, yet hopeful that we will recognize war and oppression and pollution not as separate issues, but aspects of the same. â€œThink Littleâ€ is presented here alongside one of Berryâ€™s most popular and personal essays, â€œA Native Hill.â€ This gentle essay of recollection is told alongside a poetic lesson in geography, as Berry explains at length and in detail, that what he stands for is what he stands on.
