Catalog Number: 19991006

The author of Going to Ground: Simple Life on a Georgia Pond, Amy Blackmarr has now turned to her Thoreauvian eye toward the Kansas prairie in the writing of her new book of essays, House of Steps: Finding the Path Home. Contemplating life from a rustic sixties abode, known to the locals as the Tree House, Blackmarr traces “the remarkable and incorruptible process of living from ordinary day to ordinary day.”
