The Living Landscape

Original Synopsis

"The Living Landscape has a total of 333 pages which are papers from writer 'Patrick Whitefield'. Patrick Whitefield shares a lifetime’s knowledge of the myriad interactions that go to make up the fascinating and varied landscapes we see all around us. He will inspire you to reconnect with the land as a living entity, not a collection of different scenery, and develop an active relationship with nature and the countryside. The Living Landscape opens with a chapter on how to go about reading the landscape. The following chapters then go on to look in detail into landscape formation, from rocks, through soil, to vegetation, and the intricate web of interactions among plants, animals, climate, and people that makes the landscape around us. Each chapter is interspersed with diagrams, sketches, and notes that Patrick has taken over two decades of living and working in the countryside. This book invites you to engage actively with nature and experience it firsthand. Understanding how landscapes evolve is a useful skill for landscape designers, gardeners, and farmers large and small, but it is also a life-enhancing skill all of us can enjoy. Whitefield offers us the enduring pleasure that costs nothing and yet offers everything. 2009 time of publication of the book, [-Permanent Publications-]"

Tipi Living

Original Synopsis

"Tipi Living has a total of 43 pages which are papers from writer 'Patrick Whitefield, Anne Monger'. This booklet is a practical guide to living in a tipi. There is no set of rules about how a tipi should be used, but if there were, Patrick Whitefield would be as qualified to write them as anyone. He has lived in a self-built tipi for more than eight years, and built them professionally for four.The appeal of a tipi is as much spiritual as practical. The circle is an organic, healing shape, especially for anyone who has spent a lifetime living in rectangles. Tipis are strong, roomy, weatherproof, tough, portable, and, perhaps most significantly, have a self-contained, open hearth. As a result, the tipi dweller's daily rhythms are much more in tune with those of the natural world. They become an integral part of the web of life.This concise booklet information (48 pages) combines practical information with lifestyle issues. Information includes: -- Choosing a tipi -- Pitching and siting -- Tipi maintenance -- Heating and cooking -- FurnishingThis little book makes an elegant statement about how over complicated our lives have become. What passes for simple living in other books looks like life in the fast lane compared to the lifestyle espoused in this book 2000 time of publication of the book, [-Permanent Publications-]"

How to Read the Landscape

Original Synopsis

"How to Read the Landscape has a total of 240 pages which are papers from writer 'Patrick Whitefield'. According to an ICM poll, 77 percent of UK adults, or about 38 million people, say they walk for pleasure at least once a month. It is remarkable, therefore, that no one has written about the landscapes they’re walking through and enjoying . . . until now. Patrick Whitefield has spent a lifetime living and working in the countryside and twenty years of that taking notes of what he sees, everywhere from the Isle of Wight to the Scottish Highlands. This book is the fruit of those years of experience. In How to Read the Landscape, Patrick explains everything from the details, such as the signs that wild animals leave as their signatures and the meaning behind the shapes of different trees, to how whole landscapes, including woodland, grassland, and moorland, fit together and function as a whole. Rivers and lakes, roads and paths, hedgerows and field walls are also explained, as well as the influence of different rocks, the soil, and the ever-changing climate. There’s even a chapter on the fascinating history of the landscape and one about natural succession, how the landscape changes of its own accord when we leave it alone. The landscape will never look the same again. You will not only appreciate its beauty, it will also come alive with a whole new depth of appreciation and understanding. The lively text is supported by 50 color photographs, 140 line drawings by the author, and extracts from his notebooks illustrating actual examples of the landscapes he describes. Opening How to Read the Landscape is like opening a window on a whole new way of seeing the living world around you. 2015-01-12 time of publication of the book, [--]"

The Minimalist Gardener

Original Synopsis

"The Minimalist Gardener has a total of 176 pages which are papers from writer 'Patrick Whitefield'. Low input, year-round no-dig gardening that provides your kitchen with fresh healthy food, without breaking your back Written by an acknowledged expert, this friendly guide will help you grow food in whatever space you have large or small, rural or urban with minimal purchased inputs, and maximum satisfaction. This is the first in a collection of Patrick Whitefield s pioneering writings, celebrating his life. It explores a cutting edge of permaculture gardening that is eminently practical and visionary all at the same time. Patrick describes an evolving system that is totally chemical free, requiring little input from outside the garden gate. His minimalist approach uses techniques such as no-dig, raised beds, perennial vegetables and self-seeding salads as ground cover, and mulching when appropriate. This minimizes garden maintenance whilst growing an abundance of produce year round. Patrick describes how to select plants based on what you like to eat and how to combine them in polycultures that confound would-be pests. He mixes annual hybrids, heritage varieties and perennial vegetables and has a pragmatic approach to selecting seeds and seed saving. There are also tips on fruit growing, from berries to fruit trees, including how to choose rootstocks and varieties." 2016-09-01 time of publication of the book, [--]"

Earth Care Manual

Original Synopsis

"Earth Care Manual has a total of 469 pages which are papers from writer 'Patrick Whitefield'. The long-awaited exploration of permaculture specifically for cooler Northern Hemisphere climates is finally here! Already regarded as the definitive book on the subject, The Earth Care Manual is accessible to the curious novice as much as it is essential for the knowledgeable practitioner. Permaculture started out in the 1970s as a sustainable alternative to modern agriculture, taking its inspiration from natural ecosystems. It has always placed an emphasis on gardening, but since then it has expanded to include many other aspects, from community design to energy use. It can be seen as an overall framework that puts a diversity of green ideas into perspective. Its aims are low work, high output, and genuine sustainability. 2004 time of publication of the book, [-Permanent Publications-]"

Lean Logic

Original Synopsis

"Lean Logic has a total of 656 pages which are papers from writer 'David Fleming'. Lean Logic is David Fleming's masterpiece, the product of more than thirty years' work and a testament to the creative brilliance of one of Britain's most important intellectuals. A dictionary unlike any other, it leads readers through Fleming's stimulating exploration of fields as diverse as culture, history, science, art, logic, ethics, myth, economics, and anthropology, being made up of four hundred and seventy-two engaging essay-entries covering topics such as Boredom, Community, Debt, Growth, Harmless Lunatics, Land, Lean Thinking, Nanotechnology, Play, Religion, Spirit, Trust, and Utopia. The threads running through every entry are Fleming's deft and original analysis of how our present market-based economy is destroying the very foundations--ecological, economic, and cultural-- on which it depends, and his core focus: a compelling, grounded vision for a cohesive society that might weather the consequences. A society that provides a satisfying, culturally-rich context for lives well lived, in an economy not reliant on the impossible promise of eternal economic growth. A society worth living in. Worth fighting for. Worth contributing to. The beauty of the dictionary format is that it allows Fleming to draw connections without detracting from his in-depth exploration of each topic. Each entry carries intriguing links to other entries, inviting the enchanted reader to break free of the imposed order of a conventional book, starting where she will and following the links in the order of her choosing. In combination with Fleming's refreshing writing style and good-natured humor, it also creates a book perfectly suited to dipping in and out. Recognizing that Lean Logic's sheer size and unusual structure can be daunting, Fleming's long-time collaborator Shaun Chamberlin has selected and edited one of these potential narratives to create Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy. The content, rare insights, and uniquely enjoyably writing style remain Fleming's, but are presented here at a more accessible paperback-length and in conventional read-it-front-to-back format. The decades Fleming spent honing his life's work are evident in the lightness and mastery with which Lean Logic draws on an incredible wealth of cultural and historical learning--from Whitman to Whitefield, Dickens to Daly, Kropotkin to Kafka, Keats to Kuhn, Oakeshott to Ostrom, Jung to Jensen, Machiavelli to Mumford, Mauss to Mandelbrot, Leopold to Lakatos, Polanyi to Putnam, Nietzsche to Næss, Keynes to Kumar, Scruton to Shiva, Thoreau to Toynbee, Rabelais to Rogers, Shakespeare to Schumacher, Locke to Lovelock, Homer to Homer-Dixon--in demonstrating that many of the principles it commends have a track-record of success long pre-dating our current society. Fleming acknowledges, with honesty, the challenges ahead, but rather than inducing despair, Lean Logic is rare in its ability to inspire optimism in the creativity and intelligence of humans to nurse our ecology back to health; to rediscover the importance of place and play, of reciprocity and resilience, and of community and culture. 2016-07-22 time of publication of the book, [-Chelsea Green Publishing-]"

Through the Eye of a Needle is a brilliant account of his journey—illuminating, enchanting, and often extremely funny—arguing that the way we look at clothing influences the way we look at the environment, the economy, and life itself.
