A country year is something like a baker's dozen--it contains an extra season. Hubbell lends the reader her eyes and ears to explore her peninsula between two rivers in the Ozark Mountains from one springtime to the next. Through Hubbell's eyes readers come to see their own surroundings in a very different way.

Sue Hubbell is the author of, among other works, A Country Year and A Book of Bees, which was selected as a New York Times Notable Book. She lives in Maine and Washington, D.C.From AudioFile:
Sue Hubbell's chronicle of beekeeping and life in the Ozark Mountains is obviously a reading from text. Her anecdotes and reflections offer an interesting view of this rural life, but Hubbell may not be the best choice of narrator to bring the account alive. The material is an oral history and would benefit from more energy which the author exhibits in her life, but not in the narration. Hubbell's voice is pleasant and clear, but the tone and pace are monotonous. Natural sounds, such as bees and peepers, provide infrequent breaks in tone. The clarity of the recording is excellent, and the program will interest those who prefer a neutral presentation. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
