"(T)ells how a journalist and his artist wife gave up city living and bought for fifteen dollars a century-old shack that originally had been built of massive timbers when trees were trees. The Wellses moved it to a quiet wilderness place, rebuilt it, named it 'Owl Pen', and turned to the farming life. (This book) tells of half a lifetime spent in their Canadian Eden: their brave, quiet efforts at self-sufficiency, their learning to cope with a new world of ageless verities, their discovery that birds and animals are like persons. Kenneth Wells relates this intimate story in an easy narrative style that draws strength from it understatement and its simple reverence for day-to-day incident." A few small light foxing marks on inside hinges, light edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling and tiny tears - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light fading to spine color, very light browning to inside of spine and flap-folds.
