A little white house sitting on a mountain at Goshen, West Virginia, along with the natural surroundings of the area spurred a teen-age boy towards adulthood. His intensive thoughts, wonderings, and at times comical outlook on life caused him to write down his reflections in a journal. Those journal entries and poetry are presented here in At Home on the Mountain. As you travel through this adventure to adulthood with Brian, you will begin to see the personality of this young man spring forth. You cannot help but join him sleeping under the stars on the mountain as he ingeniously protects himself from the assault of mosquitoes. You will further follow his trail as he expounds upon the woodchucks that have made themselves at home under the barn. This book is refreshing as it gives us a look at nature through the eyes of a teen-ager. At Home on the Mountain is enjoyable and a treasure.

"The physical earth is clearly under unprecedented siege—heated, toxified, scraped. But almost as if they were antibodies, the finest nature writers of any era have come forward to help in the fight. This anthology collects many of the most important, at their most eloquent. May it ring and echo and do some good!"—Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature "This is a stunning collection of vivid writing about landscapes and the people who inhabit them. The diverse narratives gathered here do more than describe hawks diving and twigs snapping, although the book has its share of moving accounts of the natural world. A concern to live responsibily in nature runs through this evocative anthology like a subterranean stream, and that moral impulse, together with the lively prose, makes this the best collection of nature writing I've seen."—Thomas A. Tweed, editor of Retelling U.S. Religious History

Type: BOOK - Published: 2002-01-04 - Publisher: Routledge

The Road Movie Book is the first comprehensive study of an enduring but ever-changing Hollywood genre, its place in American culture, and its legacy to world cinema. The road and the cinema both flourished in the twentieth century, as technological advances brought motion pictures to a mass audience and the mass produced automobile opened up the road to the ordinary American. When Jean Baudrillard equated modern American culture with 'space, speed, cinema, technology' he could just as easily have added that the road movie is its supreme emblem. The contributors explore how the road movie has confronted and represented issues of nationhood, sexuality, gender, class and race. They map the generic terrain of the road movie, trace its evolution on American television as well as on the big screen from the 1930s through the 1980s, and, finally, consider road movies that go off the road, departing from the US landscape or travelling on the margins of contemporary American culture. Movies discussed include: * Road classics such as It Happened One Night, The Grapes of Wrath, The Wizard of Oz and the Bob Hope-Bing Crosby Road to films * 1960's reworkings of the road movie in Easy Rider and Bonnie and Clyde * Russ Meyer's road movies: from Motorpsycho! to Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! * Contemporary hits such as Paris Texas, Rain Man, Natural Born Killers and Thelma and Louise * The road movie, Australian style, from Mad Max to the Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

Recently, Elizabeth Gilbert unpacked some boxes of family books that had been sitting in her mother's attic for decades. Among the old, dusty hardbacks was a book called At Home on the Range, written by her great-grandmother, Margaret Yardley Potter. As Gilbert writes in her Foreword: 'I jumped up and dashed through the house to find my husband, so I could read parts of it to him: Listen to this! The humor! The insight! The sophistication! Then I followed him around the kitchen while he was making our dinner (lamb shanks), and I continued reading aloud as we ate... By the end of the night there were three of us sitting at that table. Gima had come to join us, and she was wonderful, and I was in love.' The cookbook was far ahead of its time. In it, Potter espouses the importance of farmer's markets and ethnic food (Italian, Jewish and German), derides preservatives and culinary shortcuts and generally celebrates a devotion to epicurean adventures. Potter takes car trips out to Pennsylvania Dutch country to eat pickled pork products, and to the eastern shore of Maryland, where she learns to catch and prepare eels so delicious, she says, they must be 'devoured in a silence almost devout'. Part scholar and part crusader for a more open food conversation than currently existed, it's not hard to see where Elizabeth Gilbert inherited both her love of food and her warm, infectious prose. At Home on the Range is a fascinating, humorous and useful cookbook from the past that is essential for the present day.
At Home in Costa Rica

Authors: Martin P. Rice
Categories: Travel
Type: BOOK - Published: 2004-09-20 - Publisher: Xlibris Corporation

In October, 2000, the author and his wife moved from California to Costa Rica to begin a new life in a new country. Martin had a theory that retiring to a foreign country would present so many challenges as to make it impossible to fall into a rut, to become bored, and eventually depressed as happens to so many retirees. It appears as though his theory was a correct one. At Home in Costa Rica: An Adventure in Living the Good Life is the story of how Martin and Robin gradually adapted to their new country, and tells a fascinating tale of the trials and tribulations of learning a new way of life and a new language, of making unusual friends, of building homes, of rehabilitating animals, of surviving the machinations of alien institutions bureaucracies, of adjusting their first-world pace and needs to those of an emerging country, and much more. Told in an anecdotal style, based on letters they've been sending home for three and a half years, At Home in Costa Rica is filled with funny and touching stories about re-learning how to live in one of the most beautiful, peaceful, and stable Democracies in the world. The book is ideal for anyone who has either gone through this wonderful and at times trying process, for anyone who is contemplating living the expatriate's life, or for anyone who enjoys reading about life in other countries.

At Home in Nature

Authors: Rebecca Kneale Gould
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2005-10-24 - Publisher: Univ of California Press

Motivated variously by the desire to reject consumerism, to live closer to the earth, to embrace voluntary simplicity, or to discover a more spiritual path, homesteaders have made the radical decision to go "back to the land," rejecting modern culture and amenities to live self-sufficiently and in harmony with nature. Drawing from vivid firsthand accounts as well as from rich historical material, this gracefully written study of homesteading in America from the late nineteenth century to the present examines the lives and beliefs of those who have ascribed to the homesteading philosophy, placing their experiences within the broader context of the changing meanings of nature and religion in modern American culture. Rebecca Kneale Gould investigates the lives of famous figures such as Henry David Thoreau, John Burroughs, Ralph Borsodi, Wendell Berry, and Helen and Scott Nearing, and she presents penetrating interviews with many contemporary homesteaders. She also considers homesteading as a form of dissent from consumer culture, as a departure from traditional religious life, and as a practice of environmental ethics.
At Home on this Moveable Earth
Language: en
Pages: 217
Authors: William Kloefkorn
Categories: Biography & Autobiography
Type: BOOK - Published: 2006 - Publisher: U of Nebraska Press

Whether writing about a boyhood in the Great Depression, the bond between a young man and his family, digging storm cellars and ducking tornadoes, or the dropping of the atomic bomb as experienced by a paperboy in small-town Kansas, Kloefkorn brings a congenial mixture of seriousness and humor to his subjects. Here and there the commonplace lends itself to the not-so-common question: What is the odd relationship between power, terror, and beauty? Why are human beings torn between staying put and moving?in intellectual and spiritual as well as physical terms? And how much of who we are is composed of who we were? Rife with insight, At Home on This Moveable Earth is as wonderfully readable as the first two volumes of Kloefkorn?s memoirs, a thoughtful tour of a curious character?s life so far and a model of retrospective introspection.
