These are not the memories of a single year, however, but of a long lifetime spent immersed in the natural world. Out of the Woods, presented with humor and passion, is an account of a well-lived, productive, and satisfying life. The essays offer an intimate portrait of a half century of life on Anderson's beloved old farm (more nearly a nature preserve), where he lived in harmony with birds and nature and followed the rhythm of the seasons. We are invited to share the joys - and the disappointments and sorrows - inherent in such a life.
This book will delight bird watchers, artists, naturalists, backyard gardeners, and anyone who is sometimes tempted to take a rutted, overgrown, and unused path just to see where it leads.

A perfectly lovely, lively memoir!
What a perfectly lovely, lively memoir. This man sounds like a beautiful person inside and out. Scattered here and there are loving little remembrances of, I assume, his wife. And all the "nature stories" are richly laced with his obvious joy and enthusiasm. I highly recommend this book. Stories of love and life and nature are always wonderful ways to pass the time.
