"When New Burlington, Ohio, a farming village a century old, was flooded by the Corps of Engineers to make way for a recreational lake, and its people moved out of the village to the surrounding towns and countryside, John Baskin was the last to leave. He wrote of the life and death of New Burlington in a book that Newsweek called 'marvelous . . . .as rich and various as life itself.' Now John Baskin makes his home in a farmhouse set in a cornfield, not far from where New Burlington was. And although the town is gone, the farming life and the values it stood for remain. They are celebrated here is wise and graceful essays on everything from the rigors of January to the pleasures of geese watching, from groundhogs to syruping, from the weatherman to the mailman who brings the first harbingers of spring - seed catalogs. With this book John Baskin confirms his place as one of our finest commentators on American life."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
