“Country life, like the tree, draws its nourishment from the soil and the sky.” – Jacob Erdman
Shortly after Lee Whitney and his family settled on their homestead farm in the Kennebecasis Valley of New Brunswick, he began writing for the Kings County Record under the pen name, Jacob Erdman. His weekly column was titled “A Letter from Home.” His essays continued to be published in the paper for over thirty years, much to the delight of his devoted readers. Knowing By Heart presents a selection of these essays, along with additional observations and reflections by the author.
Taken together, the stories, observations, and reflections gathered in this book confirm that “knowing by heart” is the result of devoted participation in the life of a homestead farm.Author: Lee Whitney
