The 24 essays in The Gift of Good Land describe Wendell Berry's journeys to the highlands of Peru, the deserts of southern Arizona, and Amish country to study traditional agricultural practices.

Berry draws parallels between the Christian notion of stewardship and the Buddhist doctrine of "right livelihood." He develops the compelling argument that the "gift" of good land has strings attached: the recipient has it only as long as he practices responsible stewardship.
