Description
From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view, life in the 21st century just ain't normal, and with a wicked sense of humor and a storyteller's knack for the revealing anecdote, he tells us here just how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to land and family. Salatin, who was hailed by the New York Times as "Virginia's most multifaceted agrarian since Thomas Jefferson" and profiled in the Oscar-nominated documentary Food, Inc. and in Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, knows what food should be: wholesome, seasonal, raised naturally, procured locally, prepared lovingly, and eaten with a reverence for the circle of life.

"Joel Salatin is a down-to-earth 21st century pioneer, one of those rare contrarian thinkers whose words and work have the power to transform the way a generation thinks. Folks This Ain't Normal will help seed the new nature movement and inspire people everywhere—especially young people in need of some practical hope. And here's the bonus: The book is great fun to read. Sacred cows beware."—Richard Louv
