Agrarianism and the Good Society

Eric T. Freyfogle

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter draws upon the experiences of the main characters in the Charles Frazier novel Cold Mountain, to illustrate how nature and culture can come together on a small farm to give rise to the health and stability of the protagonists and provide an alluring vision of a rural society well settled in its natural home. The novel shows how developing a fondness for land and practicing good land use, creating a synthesis of subsistence farming and cultured transcendentalism, could transform the ways people see the world and their place in it.

Keywords:   land use, land-based culture, human nature, subsistence farming, cultured transcendentalism
