"Quietly but forcefully explores how machines encumber life and how simplicity enhances it."―Atlanta Journal Constitution
"Hubbard influenced Berry in the 1960s when Berry's world view was taking shape, and now Berry has returned with his full powers to validate something which helped him then to find his way."―Journal of Appalachian Studies
"An engaging essay. . . . Explores the difficulties, complexities and richness of Hubbard's life."―Lexington Herald-Leader
"Berry's many admirers may take special pleasure in this attractive, well illustrated book to commemorate a most unusual life that holds fast to strong principles. . . . We delight in the courage it took to maintain a lost way of life in our 20th century."―Nashville Banner
"Berry's story of the Hubbards is both reassuring and challenging . . . . [They] enlarged Thoreau's experience into a life."―Noah Adams, Washington Post
"The book is beautifully illustrated. It includes several sketches and black and white photographs of the Hubbards. Color reproductions of Harlan's paintings show the rich beauty and refinement of his art. Berry's attention to detail celebrates the life and work of this very unique man."―Northern Kentucky Heritage
"A perfect vehicle for Wendell Berry's own celebrated themes of individualism, self-sufficiency, and environmental responsibility as well as a valuable account of a productive and noted Kentucky artist."―Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
"Environmentalists, rural sociologists, and cultural researchers should examine this book and take it to heart. This work provokes reflection on the creation of social and cultural meaning and continuity."―John B. Wolford, Journal of American Folklore
