Summary
On a clear Kentucky night in 1888, a young woman risks her life to save a stranger from a drunken mob. Almost a hundred years later, her great-grandson Andy climbs a hill at the edge of town, and is flooded with memories of all he has lived, seen and heard of the past century-- of farmers wooing schoolteachers, soldiers trudging home from war; of the first motor car, the Great Depression, and Vietnam; of hunting, good whisky, and benign kidnappings; of neighbourly feuds and family secrets; of grief and betrayal-and of forgiveness, devotion and great friendship that endures for generations. These are Wendell Berry's tales of Port William, a little farming community nestled deep in the Kentucky River valley. They unravel the story of a town over the course of four generations, lovingly chronicling the intertwined lives of the families who call it home
