Originally written more than 50 years ago, this book still delights. In 1934, Merrick and his wife bought a dilapidated farm where he planned to become a famous writer. The book describes how the Merrick family survived, through hard work, love of the land, and a good sense of humor. This is still one of the best evocations of the joys of living in the Vermont countryside.

A compelling story of the Vermonters and their experiences, told largely through letters, diaries and memoirs. Illustrated. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
