Synopsis: Identical twins Lewis and Benjamin Jones farm their Welsh Borders property, "The Vision," for half a century, their vigor, pain, angers, and involvements leading them to a sense of salvation

Review: Bruce Chatwin's fascination with nomads and wanderlust represents itself in reverse in On the Black Hill, a tale of two brothers (identical twins) who never go anywhere. They stay in the farmhouse on the English-Welsh border where they were born, tilling the rough soil and sleeping in the same bed, touched only occasionally by the advance of the 20th century. Smacking of a Welsh Ethan Frome, Chatwin evokes the lonely tragedies of farm life, and above all the vibrant land of Wales.
