About this title

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Thoreau’s Walden, William Paul Winchester offers a chronicle of everyday life on Southwind, his farm of twenty acres. As a subsistence farmer, he builds his own house and barn, puts in a garden and an orchard, acquires a milk cow, and takes up beekeeping. In these pages, we hear his thoughts on such subjects as the weather, seasonal changes, machinery repair, the flora and fauna of the region, and vegetarian cooking. His philosophy, like his lifestyle, is simple, yet profoundly wise.

Book Description:

It is still possible -- and immensely satisfying -- to grow or make with one's own hands just about everything one needs to live, as William Winchester shows in this eloquent journal of two years on his 20-acre prairie farm in northeastern Oklahoma.

Winchester's day-by-day account of the trials and satisfactions of subsistence farming in the 1990s is reminiscent of Michael Pollan's Second Nature: A Gardener's Education, or perhaps even Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence.
