Introduction by Janisse Ray.
Years ago Janisse helped a beloved friend–the naturalist and farmer Milton N. Hopkins, Jr.–collect and edit essays that he wrote in the evenings from his farmhouse near Osierfield, Ga. Milton had studied at the University of Georgia with Eugene Odum, known as the father of ecology, and was tremendously fascinated by natural history. Milton’s stories of life in rural Georgia beginning in the 1930s, with an emphasis on natural history and culture, are truly a wonder.
A number of these books have recently become available through Janisse’s dad’s estate. Get one while you can, where you can. The price is only going to increase.
