Description
For millennia, farming fields in their various types have been among the most fundamental elements of human civilization. This book—beautifully illustrated with 300 photographs and full-page images styled after lithographic prints—explains how different landscapes, climates, and cultures produced a variety of field types, from the terraced rice paddies of Southeast Asia to the impenetrable hedgerows of Northwest Europe, each reflecting both ancient traditions and agricultural progress.

"It claims to be a field guide, and indeed it is, a primer on the bucolic treasure that is the meadow, prairie, pasture or plain. But [it] is so much more, tucking in whole chapters on the science, folklore, botany, food and history of the middle space (between hunting ground and sleeping cave) where wilderness was tamed and civilization was birthed."—Oklahoman
