Synopsis

"The Pond Lovers" is a sustainable farmer's ode to the watery microcosms all around us, from the half-acre farm pond to the suburban garden pool. Readers looking for hands-on experience will find plenty of pond-keeping dos and don'ts. Gene Logsdon's higher purpose, however, is to proclaim the natural, spiritual, and recreational benefits of ponds. Fed by spring or filled by rainfall, the ponds closest to Logsdon's heart need minimal human interference in the way of machinery or chemicals. Those we read about in "The Pond Lovers" mostly belong to Logsdon's friends and neighbors, an extraordinarily resourceful group of people. For them, a pond is many things - from a place to fish, swim, or skate to an oasis for local plants, insects, and animals. Each purpose, Logsdon shows us, has its place in a thoughtful, self-sufficient life. Drawn from many and varied lifetimes spent around ponds, "The Pond Lovers" brims with lessons and opportunities for good work and good play - for backyard naturalists, do-it-yourselfers, and armchair gardeners.

Gene Logsdon farms on thirty-two acres in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, a mile from his boyhood home. He is the author of more than twenty books, including a novel, "The Lords of Folly"; a cultural study, "The Mother of All the Arts"; and a discourse of pasture farming, "All Flesh Is Grass." Logsdon has also written hundreds of essays for such publications as "Utne" magazine, "Mother Jones," "Orion," and "Whole Earth Review."
