From the Publisher:
"Berry richly evokes Port William's farmlands and hamlets, and his characters are fiercely individual, yet mutually protective in everything they do. . . . His sentences are exquisitely constructed, suggesting the cyclic rhythms of his agrarian world."--New York Times Book Review."Berry richly evokes Port William's farmlands and hamlets, and his characters are fiercely individual, yet mutually protective in everything they do. . . .

Annotation:
Five stories set in Berry's fictional town of Port William, Kentucky.
Author Bio
Wendell Berry
Wendell Berry celebrates the American tradition of the small farm and the importance of landscape in all his writings. Berry was born in a small town in Kentucky, son of an attorney and grandson of farmers. After several years in California (teaching at Stanford), a year in Europe on a Guggenheim, and two years teaching at NYU, he returned at the age of 30 to Kentucky, and a year later moved with his family to a 125-acre farm in Port Royal where his family has lived since the early 1800's. He often writes about this community, called Port William in his books, and three mythical families there who are based on his own family and acquaintances. In addition to writing poetry and fiction, Berry writes about a variety of social and ecological issues. To demonstrate his concern for the environment, he limits his use of electricity, and plows his land with horse power only. He also refuses to use a computer, preferring to type his write by hand, after which his wife transfers his work on a manual typewriter, revising it as she goes along, so that much of Berry's writing is a collaboration.
