“With quiet eloquence, Katie Eberhart delicately teases away layers of the natural world and human history to explore how people adapt to landscapes and landscapes to people. The homestead at the heart of this story is a time portal that invites her to excavate the mysteries and meanings embedded within its log walls—sometimes literally. Her keen attention to the surrounding environment unveils the intricate connections between slugs and glaciers, wells and rivers, gardens and forests, settlement and abandonment, timelessness and transformation. The result is a compelling mosaic of meditations that illuminates the extraordinary within the commonplace.”
—Sherry Simpson, author of Dominion of Bears
“Katie Eberhart’s well-constructed memoir reminds me of my favorite kind of house, an old house that’s been added onto over the years, a bedroom here, a family room there, each addition reflecting the style and available materials of the period as well as the eccentricities of the owners, while maintaining an overall harmony. A house still cared-for, still full of life. As with this lovely book, when you step inside, you feel immediately at home.”
—Charles Goodrich, writer, poet. Former director of the Oregon State University’s Spring Creek Project
