Now in paperback--"A Thoreau-voiced memoir of a day off spent recharging the author's batteries by his lonesome in the Ozark woods. . . . A model of moss-velvet nature writing, quite possibly a classic" (Kirkus Reviews). Carey is the author of The Starseed Transmissions.

The author's love of his home in the Ozarks gives him the ability to engage in the minute observations that bring about universal insight. His memoir of a day-long spiritual journey through the Ozark forest brings a renewed sense of wonder for the natural environment.Review:
Ken Carey's book packs half a lifetime of good living--years of raising children and learning the ways of the Arkansas backwoods--into a mere 160 pages. There, on his 80-acre patch of ground, Carey studies the ways of the mountain people, campaigns against the forestry industry's clear-cutting practices, raises vegetables, and comes to grips with the realities of the place--such as venomous snakes outnumbering people by a wide margin up in the mountains. This fact prompts Carey to examine his leanings toward Buddhism: the kill-nothing philosophy is sublime. But in the Ozarks anyone exhibiting so pacific a temperament during summer months would soon be compost. Carey seems to have found a real home in this neglected corner of America, and he's given us a terrific book.
