by Owen Barfield
Eager Spring is a never-before-published eco-thriller, written when the author was almost 90. A young academic is drawn towards activism when she is increasingly troubled by the growing threat of biocides. Through Virginia Brooke, Barfield charts the mental and spiritual journey of a thinking person - and, by extension, of all thinking persons - faced with "the need for action and the obligation to take it". From environmental thriller to Iron Age settlement, domestic estrangement and the alienation of Man from Nature, Barfield's last work of fiction will continue to delight admirers and provoke a fresh generation of thinkers. With an introduction by John D. Rateliff.
