True story and very enjoyable read about the Elswyth Thane's life on a farm that she, and her naturalist husband William Beebe, created through the years in Wilington, Vermont.
reviewed The Strength of the Hills on
Famed storyteller and author of numerous historical novels tells her own personal story of reclaiming a neglected farm in the southern Vermont hills against the background of a world in chaos during WWII. A charming look at an inexperienced farmer finding a balance of productivity and curiosity amidst endless activities such as building, haying, sugaring, seeding, cultivating, and the loving task of transforming a house into a home. Forty delightly drawings by Helen Tee-Van add to the enjoyment of the book.
