Inhaltsangabe: Unfulfilled by city life, Amy Blackmarr, then in her mid-thirties, sold her thriving paralegal business and returned to her Georgia roots. She passed five years in her grandfather's remote "old scarecrow of a fishing cabin" beside a South Georgia pond, where she immersed herself in her surroundings and in her writing. With warmth, charm, and humor, Blackmarr mixes vignettes from her past with reflections on the present, describing the surprising generosity of strangers; life without hot water; her two dogs, one a "lush" and the other a cave builder; the occasional visit from an alligator; her days as a two-stepping cowgirl; pheasant hunting with her third ex-husband; and the life and death of her grandmother. In the tradition of Kathleen Norris's The Cloister Walk and Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Going to Ground is Blackmarr's ode to romance, to the beauty of nature, to the joys and fears of solitary life, and to one woman's discovery of herself.
Inhaltsangabe: Unfulfilled by city life, Amy Blackmarr sold her thriving Kansas business and returned to the pine woods of South Georgia to follow a dream. For five years, she lived in her grandfather's "old scarecrow of a fishing cabin" beside the pond. Now with warmth, humor, and a strong, clear voice, she brings her rustic world alive in stories about her dogs, life without hot water, visits from an alligator, and the life and death of her grandmother. Blackmarr also writes candidly of the demons she must conquer in her own nature to become the person she longs to be while continually proving there is wonder to be found in every moment. In the tradition of Thoreau's "Walden and Annie Dillard's "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Going to Ground is a tribute to the transcendent beauty of nature and the joys, fears, lessons, and serenity of the solitary life.
