When my family moved out from Burlington, Vermont, to a dirt road in rural Essex Center, our life immediately began to suffer the series of challenges and small disasters that quickly sort out the clueless city guy from the true Vermonter. This collection of stories is mainly about those challenges, almost all of which I failed - and about the most important, most evil challenge of all: our driveway. A gravel driveway, especially a steep one, is an umbilicus between home and the outside world, an index of change that can wash out or burst into flower overnight, and the cause of more sweat and backache than all the rest of the property combined. In many ways, this book celebrates the glories of the countryside; in many ways it is appalled. If Thoreau had read this book, he would never have made the mistake of moving to Walden Pond - or at least he'd have made damn sure not to have a driveway.

About the Author:

Brookes was born in England and worked as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, dealer in used instruments, and a tour guide before moving to Vermont. In Vermont he lived for two decades in the college town of Burlington, teaching and writing. Nothing prepared him or his wife and two daughters for life in Essex Center.
