Book description:

By Tom Conlan

“Back to the simple earth” — Tom Conlan comes by his love of the land naturally, generations after a beloved grandfather worked and saved to escape Detroit and move north. Conlan inherited that longing; he reveled in his boyhood of treeforts, baseball, and Sloppy Joes, even as it was unfolding. He revels in it still, with graceful language and long thoughts, with good dogs, good horses, and even better homemade wine. — Mardi Link, author of The Drummond Girls and Bootstrapper
