The Witch of Hebron
James Howard Kunstler
What a gritty descriptive book this was! It was a good read in a guilty sort of way.
kind of like the accident you know you should look away from but you just can't. Violent at times, part cautionary tale, part "nature triumphs over the residues of man" - an interesting story that really makes you think. I could not put this book down.
"The air was filled with enticing aromas - hams smoking, apple butter in the kettle, a whiff of things baking here and there, the piquant stink of autumn rot where the road took them through the stretches of woodland, and always the reassuring smell of the horses."
