In warm and humorous prose, this award-winning columnist writes about her adventures in Pennsylvania's apple country and the realities to be faced when the ambiance wears thin. Each subject in An Outlander's Journal seems ordinary, but Eileen Graham digs deep to reveal layers both bright and dark, like the red shale and ironstone found under her Adams County soil.

Through her clear yet compassionate eyes, explore the Stony Batter, Maybelle's place, Dickey's Hill and the neighborhood swimmin' hole.

Meet a faith healer,

beekeepers, a skunk trapper of the year, and country folk who celebrate spring by throwing an egg over their house. Commiserate as she comes to terms with goats, pigs, sheep, a horse, a goose, two growing boys, and a husband who never met a tractor he didn't like.

In the words of her neighbor Hazel Johnson, An Outlander's Journal may just be "the most wonderfullest" book you read this year.
