Publisher Comments:

That Distant Land includes twenty-three stories from Wendell Berry's Port William membership arranged in their fictional chronology. The book shines forth as a single sustained work, not simply an anthology. It reveals Wendell Berry as a literary master capable of imaginative integrity over decades of writing with a multitude of characters followed over several generations. Combining "The Wild Birds" (1985), "Fidelity" (1992), and "Watch With Me" (1994), and including four never-before-collected stories and a map and genealogy of Port William, this book offers rest for the weary, hope for the beleaguered, and strength for the rest of us.

Synopsis:

Drawn from three collections of stories and including new work, That Distant Land extends over nearly a century of Berry's Port William community. With 23 stories from the author's Port William membership, this book is arranged in its fictional chronology, and it shines forth as a single sustained work. That Distant Land truly reveals Wendell Berry — award-winning essayist, novelist, and poet — as a literary master.

Burnsy, July 25, 2009 (view all comments by Burnsy)
Simply a fantastic collection of stories with characters interweaving across a century of change. At the core of the story are themes of fidelity (dedication to place and others ), ecology, and the struggles/rewards of life in an agricultural setting.

A great work of literature that will improve one's view of community and purpose. Read, read, read.....
