Twenty-five years ago, when she was twenty-one, Beth Powning and her husband left their native Connecticut for an abandoned farmhouse in a secluded province of Canada. They wanted a home insulated from the onslaught of strip malls and neon.

In paperback for the first time, Home is a powerful celebration of the search for the spirit of home in nature, as well as the memoir of a woman's relationship with the land, as its mysteries, pleasures, and terrors unfold before her.

Brought to life with seventy-five sensuous color photographs taken by the author, and filled with rare insights into the natural world, this story will strike a resonant chord in anyone who has yearned for a simpler life.

From the Back Cover:

"Beth Powning's beautiful celebration of natural life is meet and proper for these unnatural times. I think it will be read for years to come."

--E.L. Doctorow

"Beth Powning's sensuous photographs and pure, powerful prose lure us into their embrace, laying bare our desire for a union with the natural world. This is the work of a gifted artist."

--Courtney Milne, Sacred Places in North America

"Quite simply, this book is the most evocative marriage of works and photographs I have ever been privileged to experience. From her acute and powerful observation of her physical surroundings, Beth Powning creates images that resonate in the soul."

--Freeman Patterson, Photography and the Art of Seeing
