Hill Song

A Country Journal
by Lee Huntington

Journal entries about life on a Vermont farm. Describing the work in the gardens, the sweat and joy of harvest. The passing of seasons. Wildlife both big and small observed in the surrounding woods. The moods of changing weather, how the people adjust to it using only wood as fuel for heat, etc. But other things too, like musings on why elderly people are so little respected these days, or how people use cliches to describe things without even actually looking to see what they resemble. A nice, contemplative read. Hill Song is one I took my time with.

Rating: 3/5 ........ 163 pages, 1985
