4.0 von 5 Sternen Inspiring!, 8. Februar 2000
Von 
Linda Hudson "Lopezian" (Everett, WA USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Contrary Farmer (Real Goods Independent Living Book) (Taschenbuch)
I found this book at an interesting time. My husband and I had just finished the PBS series, "The Farmer's Wife", which was the story of small family farmers trying to make it in an Agribusiness World. It was particularily interesting that the farming couple were so strapped for cash that they couldn't work their own farms, but had to take off-farms jobs such as factory work and house cleaning. They didn't even have a chance to plant and harvest a home vegetable garden for their own needs! The sense I got from watching this show was that someting was Terribly Wrong! In his book, The Contrary Farmer, Gene Logsdon tells his readers just what is wrong with the situation farmers and farms find themselves in today...horrendously expensive equipment, monoculture and an endless cycle of huge bank loans and crop failures, which lead to more loans. This book was also a refreshing look at small self-sufficient farming and I found myself inspired to be satisfied with our small operation and to always WANT to keep it small!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Agriculture with Attitude!, 19. Juli 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Contrary Farmer (Real Goods Independent Living Book) (Taschenbuch)
Mr. Logsdon's wisdom and simple common sense (not so common anymore!) give all us "Contrarians" a little support. In a world of full of farmers that follow the edicts of the chemical-company-supported extension services and consultants it is a relief to hear from someone who does it the old fashioned way, which is the only way for a farmer without thousands of acres and millions of dollars to succeed.
A great primer on the foolish basis for our economic system which ignores the primary industry of any civilization: farming.
My only reservations came from personal biases that we don't share. I don't really fault him for these things, it just made me value the book a shade less.
I have passed it on to my most "contrary" friends who have an interest in farming or the earth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gene Logsdon is a national treasure, 15. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Contrary Farmer (Real Goods Independent Living Book) (Taschenbuch)
If you haven't run across Gene Logsdon before, it's probably not just because he keeps a low profile; it's also that he's one of America's best kept secrets. You see, he's an honest man, and he calls a spade exactly that, usually with such a wry angle that you end up laughing. Reading "The Contrary Farmer" was the kind of pleasure you wish more books on the rural life would deliver. It's like having Gene over for coffee and being able to hear him expound on thoughts you never quite got around to thinking all the way through. Gene Logsdon is a hard-working thinking-person's genius and a national treasure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very, Very Good! A classic!, 14. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Contrary Farmer (Real Goods Independent Living Book) (Taschenbuch)
The Contrary Farmer is very informative about small scale farming. Logsdon has many creative and interesting ideas. The book interlaces information with good stories and philosophizing. It is often rather humorous. Overall, it is perhaps one of the most enjoyable farming books on the market, if not THE most enjoyable. This is true whether you farm or whether you are only interested in farming. Very highly recomended!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for modern homesteaders, 7. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Contrary Farmer (Real Goods Independent Living Book) (Taschenbuch)
Mr Logsdon explores all the aspects critical to proper land management on a homesteaders smallholding and offers well thought out, practical advice that REALLY WORKS! Had he been able to keep some of his misdirected predjudicial rants in check I would have given it 5 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a breath of fresh air, 28. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Contrary Farmer (Real Goods Independent Living Book) (Taschenbuch)
This book is an eye opener. Mr. Logsdon, an advocate of the small family farm, shares his know how, observations, and years of experience, honestly. He gives hope for a better, healthier future, in a world which too often seems to be propelled to a bleak end.
