About this title

Synopsis:

The fifteen poems and one essay included here, personally selected by Wendell Berry from among his previously published work, quietly and joyously celebrate the enduring satisfactions of good work and a happy home.

Traveling at Home opens with A Walk Down Camp Branch,” an essay in which the author reveals his special sensitivity to nature and his rural Kentucky community. Next are poems from 1957 to 1982 in which Berry establishes his enduring themes the contemplation of the individual’s place within community and the interdependence of all things. In conclusion is a group of the Sabbath poems in which the poet speaks with reverence and humility of the pains and joys of relationships with the land, with family, and with passing generations.

Originally published as a limited edition in 1988, Traveling at Home pairs Mr. Berry’s eloquent writings with John DePol’s exquisite woodcuts. It is one of the most beautiful presentations of this well-loved writer’s work.
