Review
I read this story many times and it never stops inspiring me. A hopeful story about how one person's determined effort to do the right thing was a gift to a countless number of people...many of whom were not yet born. Read this story....though it is short, it will stay with you forever.

Review
Noel Perrin wrote many books and articles in his lifetime and this compilation of essays is a collection from his earlier works. From practical to philosophical, Perrin's writings encompass a full range of thoughts. He loved every inch of his 85 acres in Vermont and his last essay is a farewell to his farm which had to leave shortly before his death in 2004. He made certain to that his farm in Thetford, Vermont would be preserved as farmland. It is now owned by Terry Osborne who writes the foreword to this book.  Get this book!
