One-Straw Revolutionary represents the first commentary on the work of the late Japanese farmer and philosopher Masanobu Fukuoka (1913 – 2008), widely considered to be natural farming’s most influential practitioner. Through his own personal narrative, Larry Korn distills his experience of more than thirty-five years of study with Mr. Fukuoka. Readers will delight in this personal insight into one of the world’s leading agricultural thinkers.
