The most comprehensive study to date of spirituality and the homesteading movement. Engages with American spiritual traditions like Puritanism, Transcendentalism, and countercultural back-to-the-land movements. Essential reading for anyone writing about modern homesteading!
A note on tone: This is an academic book published by a university press, so I'm not sure why other reviewers were surprised to find it "dry" compared to popular nonfiction. By academic standards, Gould's book is extremely readable and grounded by occasional personal anecdotes and observations.
