A Countryman's Journal

Author:   

Description for A COUNTRYMAN'S JOURNAL: VIEWS OF LIFE AND NATURE FROM A MAINE COASTAL FARM by Roy Barrette:

Vivid prose sketches of country life---about people, furred and feathered creatures, growing things, and the changes of season on a Down East coastal farm---make up this beautifully written book. Here is the rich flavor of New England and the sea, evoking a flood of memories for anyone who has ever vacationed or lived in the area. But this is also a book for anyone who has ever wondered about country life as an alternative to the pressures and problems, the mechanization and regimentation of urban living. Author Barrette, who made the switch many years ago, goes beyond the obvious differences to emphasize the greater opportunities in a country setting to understand and to be one's own true self, to know and appreciate other people, and to experience the wonders of nature.

Within the covers of A COUNTRYMAN'S JOURNAL is a world far removed from the noisy city civilization of the 1980s. It is a world of clamming, jam-making, coon-hunting, and well-drilling; of cows and sheep with personalities; of fierce winter snowstorms and peaceful fields and forests; of chipmunks, bobcats, weasels, deer, and snowy owl; of neighbors who care.
