If you like Wendell Berry’s poetry, you should familiarize yourself with the poems of nature writer Liberty Hyde Bailey!
Bailey was one of the most prominent American botanists and horticulturalists of the early twentieth century. He was also an agrarian writer whose work inspired Wendell Berry and one of the fathers of the Country Life Movement, and yes, also a nature poet.
Yesterday was Bailey’s birthday, and in honor of the occasion, we marked down our edition of his collection of poems to 99c for Kindle!
(This is a limited time offer and a great chance to familiarize yourself with his wonderful poetry!)
