Book Excerpt: 
. . .His gross receipts last summer were from $600 to $700 per month, of which $300 was profit. He grows his own feed, principally oats and hay, and has no worries over harvesting or grain prices.

Truck Gardening.—Long days of abundant sunshine from May to September, and adequate moisture in the spring and early summer permit of a wide variety of products. The soil is rich and warm, and easily worked. Close attention to cultivation has resulted in record yields of vegetables and small fruits, which bring good prices in the cities.

A farmer within five miles of Moose Jaw, who sold vegetables at the city market last year realized more than $300 between August 1, and October 30. He had half an acre in carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, radishes, beans, lettuce and onions, and half an acre in potatoes and turnips. His own table was supplied all summer and enough vegetables were put in the cellar to supply him during the winter and seed potatoes in the spring.Read More

There is something I mistrust in a man who hates his own time, who sees in it only folly and wrong-headedness, and who lives in a dreamed-of world in his head, a world of he has invented from the Glorious Past—and which he expects in the Glorious Future to come—but which never actually existed, and

Decided to DNF this for now. I generally like Morris but I'm struggling to get through this. I get that his socialism is based on a very idealised view of Medieval times, there's just a lot about this vision of society that bothers me. Namely:

“Yes,” said he, “and moreover it is all that we can do. If in addition we torture the man, we turn his grief into anger, and the humiliation he would otherwise feel for his wrong-doing is swallowed up by a hope of revenge for our wrong-doing to him.”

I first read this book years ago in a Utopian lit class (really fabulous class with a great teacher), so I remembered some of it, but as usual, my leaky memory meant that a second read through revealed far more stuff than the first time around.

One thing I'd forgotten that I found interesting this ti

I would say News from Nowhere is more interesting than enjoyable. It's a fascinating look at a possible society, but there isn't much of a plot or characterisation. It's not precisely a novel, but it's certainly worth a read.

Got to love some fictional politics

I go back to this book "News from Nowhere, or an Epoch of Rest", again and again to remember how the world might be if sanity prevailed. The book was set in 1950 in a world where a socialist-anarchist revolution had taken place in the 19th century. It presupposes a source of clean energy has been di

تبدأ رواية «أخبار من لا مكان» مع بطلها وراويها، وليام غيست (ضيف) الذي لن يطول بنا الأمر قبل أن ندرك انه ليس سوى الأنا/ الآخر للكاتب نفسه، وقد غرق ذات يوم في سبات عميق يفيق بعده في زمن آخر غير زمنه. في زمن تبدلت أحواله وأضحى مجتمعاً اشتراكياً تدار فيه وسائط الإنتاج إدارة ديموقراطية لصالح الخير العام.

This is one of the best editions of "News from Nowhere" in my opinion, and that only on Clive Wilmer's account. His introduction to Morris' life, work and thought was both insightful and informative, thoroughly unbiased and very well-documented.

As William Morris himself said it, the only “safe way o
