The Pull of the Earth is an exemplary blend of collaborative ethnography and participatory research. With contributions from diverse school participants — including the students themselves — Thorp and her collaborators chart a powerful course of action for planting roots in locality, service, and citizenship. It is indeed a wonderful book.
