Carrying Water as a Way of Life

 

by Linda Tatelbaum

 

A professor and dean flee a bankrupt college and head “back to the land” in 1977. They build a solar house and organic garden in Maine, where they enter the life of their rural town as it vanishes under pressure from land developers. A chronicle of keeping faith with nature, these lyrical and wry essays celebrate human effort while mourning the loss of wilderness.
