Strongly recommend the classic of classics, The Soil And Health, Sir Albert Howard. In my view nothing since has equalled his research and reach, for the details and big picture. Small farmers struggling with their bottom line and methods need his insights, as well as modern "civilization" in general. All the people you mention - and some you didn't like Rodale - only built on his work.
