The first edition of this work. A book based on the author's observations on traditional farming method in South Asia. In particular, Howard looks at the connection between healthy soils and the healthy population in the village.The ideas put forward in this book have inspired the foundation of the Soil Association, a charity based group campaigning on issues such as the opposition to intensive farming, support for local purchasing, and public education on nutrition. A very interesting and eye-opening read.
