When the urban bustle of Eugene, Ore., got to be too much, poet Minato moved to a woodsy cabin on a commune and absorbed a year's worth of material for this collection of essays and poems. Simplifying her life in the rustic surroundings, she learned that "it is freeing to emerge, even unwillingly, from the clutch of possessions." A decomposing raccoon attuned her to the realities of life and death, chopping wood taught her patience, and snails reminded her to slow down.--From Publishers weekly.

Beautifully written modern version of Thoreau. A woman retreats to semi-rural Oregon to slow down and experience the simple life. She forms an informal but deeply-felt community with a few like-minded people who share the space and help her grow both her vegetables and her ideas.
