As many know, Kimber has led a largely rural life as a farmer, writer, and woodsman in Temple. The essays gathered in this wide-ranging collection reflect a lifetime of adventures and misadventures. Kimber writes of canoeing and fishing, stubborn sheep and old tractors, and the joys of roaming the woods with his dog. Seasoned with a dash of wit and self-irony, this paean to the upcountry life is as fresh and bracing as it is affectionate.

Kimber’s work has appeared in Audubon, Country Journal, Down East, Field & Stream, Harrowsmith, Horticulture, Yankee, Northern Woodlands, and the Missouri Review. He is the author of the books, “Upcountry,” “A Canoeist’s Sketchbook,” “Made for the Country,” and “Living Wild and Domestic.”

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event and Bob Kimber will be signing.

DDG Booksellers is located at 193 Broadway, Farmington. For more information call 207 778-3454 or email info@ddgbooks.com
