This, the first title in the Port William series, introduces the rural section of Kentucky with which novelist Wendell Berry has had a lifelong fascination. When young Nathan loses his grandfather, Berry guides readers through the process of Nathan's grief, endearing the reader to the simple humanity through which Nathan views the world. Echoing Berry's own strongly held beliefs, Nathan tells us that his grandfather's life "couldn't be divided from the days he'd spent at work in his fields." Berry has long been compared to Faulkner for his ability to erect entire communities in his fiction, and his heart and soul have always lived in Port William, Kentucky. In this eloquent novel about duty, community, and a sweeping love of the land, Berry gives readers a classic book that takes them to that storied place.

Book Description Counterpoint, Berkeley, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: NEW. First edition. 120pp. 23x15cm. Brown and White cover with painting. When Wendell Berry finished the first draft of Nathan Coulter, he had no idea his interest in the citizens of Port William, Kentucky, would continue for more than fifty years. Yet it was only the beginning of a long celebration of their lives and work. Focusing on young Nathan's struggle to understand the value of land and family, Berry provides a lyrical vision of one's duty to home and community. When Nathan comes to a realization after the death of his grandfather, he echoes Berry's own ideals by proclaiming that 'his life couldn't be divided from the days he'd spent at work in his fields.'.
