Jonty Williams, a founding member of the Henry George Society of Devon, has written a book setting out how the ancient art of Husbandry provides us with principles for the transformation of our relationship with each other and with Mother Earth. The power of the story lies in the beautiful, evocative, personal and heartfelt way it is told. Jonty writes:
This is an earth community to which I belong. This mutual belonging – this settling on a future in intimate relationship with a geographically located ecological, social and economic community – is the story of humanity. Each person, each people, each place with its special perspective has myriad stories both of the amazing – and the tragic – to tell. An understanding of this mutual belonging, it seems to me, is needed for humanity and our world to see the way out of the mess we are making for ourselves.
