Former Poet Laureate Donald Hall grew up spending his summers on his grandfather Keniston's farm in what was then rural New Hampshire. It was there that his mother, Lucy, and her sister Caroline, had grown up, milking cows and raising sheep. Lucy's Summer is a piece of Americana that will bring readers back to a simpler and gentler America in which pleasure was derived from making as much as buying, and worth was determined by character, not price.
