John Linstrom: 100 Years of 'The Holy Earth' by Liberty Hyde Bailey
We mark Earth Day with a profile of Liberty Hyde Bailey, the "Father of American Horticulture." Particular attention here goes to his small but influential book "The Holy Earth," which has recently been released from Counterpoint Press in a centennial-edition. ("The Holy Earth" first appeared in 1915.) This new edition contains an introduction by Wendell Berry. Our guest in the interview is editor for this special edition, John Linstrom, former director of the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum in Bailey's hometown of South Haven, Michigan. —Original airdate: 4/22/2016
