Linnea RyshkeA Good Life and Subsistence are part of Kindling (Lantern Publishing and Media, September 2021), by Linnea Ryshke, a collection of poetry, photography, visual art and essays following field experience working at a small-family meat farm. Centered on an ethnographic sensitivity, the book offers a gentle, honest, yet stirring narrative of an environment in which nonhuman animals are valued based on economic gain.

 

This is part of FIELDS, a section of The Learned Pig devoted to exploring fields as natural and (agri)cultural, invisible and visible, poor and productive, created and creators. FIELDS is conceived and edited by Marloe Mens.
