Bill McKibben's all-time favorite books

Activist and writer Bill McKibben is the award-winning author of The End of Nature and The Age of Missing Information. His new book, Eaarth, argues that our planet already has been irrevocably remade by human activity.

He named his six favorite books for The Week magazine. One title on the list:
Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry

Any book by this Kentucky farmer-writer will do, but this novel is a particularly moving part of his ongoing project: showing the meaning of and need for real human community. Once you’re finished with this, continue on to his collected essays.
The Page 69 Test: Bill McKibben's Deep Economy.
