Gene Everlasting: A Contrary Farmer's Thoughts on Living Forever
I love all things Gene Logsdon…so of course I loved this book too. But more than that, I think it's his best book yet. Even though Gene is contemplating his own mortality, he doesn't look at it directly, but in a to-the-side sort of manner. He sneaks up on his subject while talking about something perfectly practical in his endearing and irreverent way--like the seemingly everlasting life of chickweed! or of the beauty and benefit of buzzards, or of how as farmers "we raise our farm animals with loving care, grow quite fond of them, put our lives at risk to save theirs if necessary, and then we kill and eat them." In this way, like a star in the night sky, his contemplation of mortality comes into focus.
