This paperback edition brings together Donald Hall's writings on Eagle Pond Farm, his ancestral home in New Hampshire, where he visited his grandparents as a young boy, and then lived with his wife, the poet Jane Kenyon, until her death. It includes the entire, previously publishedSeasons at Eagle Pond, the poem "Daylilies on the Hill," fromThe Painted Bed,and several uncollected pieces. In these tender essays, Hall tells of the joys and quiddities of life on the farm, the pleasures and discomforts of a world in which the year has four seasons--maple sugar, blackfly, Red Sox, and winter. Lyrical, comic, and elegiac, they sing of a landscapes and culture that are disappearing under the assault of change.
