Her latest prose work, a graceful and appealing blend of ten essays and eight stories, grew from the exertions and exhilarations of country living.

Now a consummate horsewoman, Kumin here revels in the long-awaited birth of a foal- the rehabilitation of an abused mare- and such daily pleasures as the antics of Rilke, the Poets Dog, and the tactile beauty of home-grown vegetables.

Kumin also muses on the process of writing, as inspired by the natural rhythms of farm life. Her stories, always underscored by a profound attachment to the natural world, focus subtly on personal relationships - as between a young naturalist and her widowed father- or a love affair between a hunter and a radical environmentalist.

Full of anecdote and advice, love and grief, these pieces showcase one of our most versatile and deeply passionate writers.
