Reviews

"An extraordinary account of the sustaining powers of landscape, of the stewardship of private places, and of those rare people in life who, by their refusal to teach, become our most enligtening teachers. A haunting book, beautiful and funny and sad, written with enormous warmth and grace."-- "Ted Leeson"
"It is a grand true story and its wonderful old men are classic American characters."-- "Annie Dillard"
