Beschreibung

In these thoroughly engaging stories, Country Living columnist Jo Northrop shares her deeply felt convictions about the importance of a sense of place - a country place. When she became legally blind, she found that returning to the land gave her a way to heal, and here she offers her observations, some humorous, some thoughtful, of country life. She begins by recalling her childhood on a North Carolina farm, as she understood the rhythm of the seasons: when it was time to plant a garden, when the bobwhite quail hatched and where the guineas made their nests. Country creatures have their own ways of adapting to the open spaces, and Northrop tells of her pets, from the loving and loyal Labrador, Tar, to her tabby, Poo, a "curmudgeon of the highest order". Knowing that "nothing helps us put our hands on a place like matters of hearth and home", she recalls undertaking the restoration of an old stone farmhouse and relays the communion of a good cook and her favorite cookware. She portrays the active, participatory life she led in the country with her husband, from an exciting float trip down the Miramichi River to jaunting around the heath and heather in Scotland. She studies the barn on her land in upstate New York, a barn whose natural beauty needed no enhancement, even after two centuries. Finally, she pulls together these separate pieces of a life to show the whole picture. On the farm, she realized that the very land, water and sky helped her heal and it became clear to her that what we have is more important than what we have not: "It all adds to the rich mix of time in touch with the land".
