A visitor may never know a land as well as its denizens do, but that visitor sometimes will see things that the residents cannot. In other words, with distance comes perspective, as in this account of rural Korea in the 1950s from the view of a sensitive and inquisitive foreign village priest. A farmer's almanac of a specific place and time, this book records the seasons, the harvest, the customs of the people, and conversations with local Confucian scholars.
