    1. If you want some honest, slow paced, smily faced reading don t miss this book John Graves, a WWI wounded Marine stakes out a chunk of Texas ground that has been beaten to death by previous owners He and Jane s travails in putting the place back together and touches of the people and animals they live with are comfortable and heart warming I ve read it three times now and if you are not into tweets and earplugs and like your writing beautifully thought out and expressed, this is a winner All of J [...]

    5. John Graves is one of my favorite writers Most of his work is regional to north central Texas and he has been called a modern Thoreau I don t know about the latter statement but his style is definitely reflective and a tad melancholy at times But he clearly connects with the land of his youth and in this book you see his connections to his little piece of Texas in Bosque County He writing style gives life and meaning to even the mundane elements of country life While it will not appeal to every [...]
