Summary
""Robert Frost was a practicing farmer, a skilled naturalist and one of America's best-loved poets. This book pieces together Frost's environmental commentary, examining his poems thematically and in a logical order. Frost bemoaned the loss of people from the land but also celebrated the flora and fauna that thrived in fallow fields and empty barns"--
