Abstract

In an interview titled, "Field Observations," the environmentalist and writer, Wendell Berry, spoke about long-range decisions he was making for his farmland in the Kentucky River Valley. "What I'm going to do here." he explained to the interviewer as they walked Berry's upland pastures, "is grow an old -growth forest. It will take about 200 years, and I won't live to see it."
