Allan Savory

“If there were a poet laureate of holistic management, his name would be Daniel Griffith.”

From Next Generation Book awardee Daniel Firth Griffith erupts a groundbreaking collection of poems and prose that really just want to be poems about the WILDING of the regenerative movement that reveals a radically reconceived picture of agriculture—as something definitively more ancient and definitely more wild.

What does calculus, Shakespeare, and persimmon trees have to say about the wild? What is the role of briars in the nurturing of oak forests? How do wild animals and wild spirits co-create a more resilient and regenerating world? How must we as humans think and what must we as humans believe in order to become an active member of the beautiful and wild world?

Part mystical stories and poems where trees talk and briars walk, part lyrical studies of mathematics and art, Dark Cloud Country is, above all, a story of hope grounded in the wisdom of our ancient past. In Dark Cloud Country, Griffith debuts a new paradigm for wilding—what he calls the Four Relationships: chaos, bounds, art, and singularity. Instead of offering us regenerative practices, Griffith’s Four Relationships invites us to open our minds to transform the way we think so that our community with Mother Earth is elevated from dominance to reciprocity—a journey that begins by dropping your shears and opening your ears; one that begins by taking off your shoes.

Here, in the sacred and reawakening heart of the wild, a love story of Creation emerges and a mythology centered around the singularity of spirit and matter, of the human heart and the heart of the world, transforms our once drought-stricken dirt into rain-stained magnificence. “Regeneration, if it is about anything at all, is about getting off your bum and dancing until the rains come,” writes Griffith.

"If you relish poetic writing, if you are in awe of existence ever in the process of creating, and if you delight in beauty, mystery, and wonder, you will dance with Daniel through the four relationships of regeneration--chaos, bounds, art, and singularity--as Dark Cloud Country delights your mind and dazzle your spirit."

“Griffith’s Dark Cloud Country isn’t your typical how-to save the planet guide. Instead, it proposes an antidote to the way we live our lives as individuals. Dark Cloud Country is a thought provoking challenge of the stories we tell ourselves. Open up and let Griffith’s words flow through you. You might be surprised what you find.”

- Anthony Gustin DC, MS, founder of Zero Acre Farms, Perfect Keto & Equip Foods. He is the host of The Natural State Podcast and author of the best-selling Keto Answers.

“An eco-poet and philosopher, Griffith’s ecstatic imaginings and lyrical prose don’t just live on the page, they pulse in the body, calling us back into right relationship with our beautiful and ever-bewitching home planet. Myth and rumination, physics and ritual, soil and soul all converge, here, to give voice to the magnificence of life. Reading Dark Cloud Country is like watching a murmuration of starlings. The mind swerves. Dives. Rises. It travels to surprising places. The heart too.”

- Mary Reynolds Thompson, author of Reclaiming the Wild Soul and A Wild Soul Woman.

"Dark Cloud Country is a magical, artful meditation on what it means to be human in the here-and-now: a salve to the excruciating buzzing of a civilization composting around us. It’s a request to sit still and listen to all that circumambulates us through all timelines. It is a love-letter to lineage, togetherness, and all magic that can be gleaned from rootedness and relationship. It is a song for the death that unites us all."


- Maren Morgan, Writer, Filmmaker, Podcaster & Co-creator of Death in The Garden.

“In the beginning, it was Daniel’s voice echoing in my head when I followed the lines. But then, gradually, it became mine. The more I read it out loud, the more it resonated within me and resonated with my voice. The jump between story, poem, and lyrical prose broke my flow and I was startled into a deep awareness. I often had to pause to look out of my window to practice my own observations. The more I read, the less notes I took. The more I just am—sitting with the words ringing in my head. Griffith’s Dark Cloud Country make it clear—it is art we lack, not science; poems, not progress.”

Leon Bucher, HUB Lead of Landregeneration, Germany.

“Like a brilliant mind wandering amidst beautiful chaos, Griffith explores the depths of regeneration through an outcry for observation, of ourselves first and our surroundings second. Dark Cloud Country is a necessary and beautiful wayfinding expedition to get lost in our musings toward a definition of what Regeneration actually means—it is an invitation to love, to choose, and to do better. This is a work that starts in Griffith’s words and concludes deep within our hearts.”

- Julie Jackson, Co-Founder of Taurio.

“Dark Cloud Country reminds us that landscapes, homelands, and communities, are not merely spaces to hold our invaluable quest for awe, beauty, love. They also are vessels for our despair, hardship, loss, grief. With all those emotions embodied, space becomes place and place is protagonist. Daniel’s words, which he encourages us to voice on our own through reading the text, melds with so many before us, creating the relationships necessary for regeneration.”

- Andrea Malmberg, A caretaker of livestock who help her to heal land. Savory Institute Master Field Professional & Ecological Outcome Master Verifier.

Dark Cloud Country is a beautiful dive into the subject of regeneration from ecological, spiritual, scientific, and philosophical perspectives. In lyrical, meditative prose, Griffith invites readers to expand their understanding of regenerative living and thinking.”

- Stephanie Anderson, author of One Size Fits None: A Farm Girl’s Search for the Promise of Regenerative Agriculture.
