'The task is to create a form of social life by which the soil, the plants, the animals are in harmony with each other.' -- Karl Koenig
Karl Koenig was deeply concerned for the relationship between the earth and humanity, and how landscape, plants and animals contribute to that relationship.
This book presents sixteen lectures and essays by Koenig, which explore the connection between biodynamics, domestic animals, elemental beings and many other aspects of farming and agriculture, all the time looking for how harmony and balance can be achieved in relation to the needs of human beings.
This includes a revised edition of material previously published in Earth and Man.
