Abstract:

In a radical departure from her urban life, Ann Turner buys a piece of remote Vermont land and sets up a tent home in deep forest. She's trying to escape an unending string of personal disasters in Boston; more, she desperately wants to leave behind a world she sees as increasingly defined by consumerism, hypocrisy, and division. As she writes in her journal, "There's got to be a more honest, less divided way to live." She soon learns she was mistaken in thinking a kindly Mother Earth would grant her wisdom and serenity in her new home.

Trying to escape an unending string of personal disasters in Boston, Ann Turner buys a piece of remote Vermont land and sets up a tent home in deep forest. She desperately wants to leave behind a world she sees as increasingly defined by consumerism, hypocrisy, and division. She soon learns she was mistaken in thinking a kindly Mother Earth would grant her wisdom and serenity in her new home: the forest is full of dangers, loneliness, and wild animals. Working as a farmhand, she discovers what hard work really means, about dairy farming ... and about herself. -- adapted from jacket.
