    One thought on “A Naturalist Buys an Old Farm”

    1. I live just a couple of towns away from the what is now the Edwin Way Teale sanctuary in Hampton CT It is worth the trip to see this place because they named such tiny spots, it will make you laugh to match the description in the book and the actual places I also had the pleasure of meeting his wife about 15 years ago The book is best read and savored slowly.

    2. After having read other books authored by Teale, I found A Naturalist Buys an Old Farm, to be a major disappointment The book outlines Edwin and Nellie Teale s purchase of what they believe to be an ideal property idyllic given what they value in life, which is described in the book as undisturbed nature.Yet, the property that the Teale s purchase had been a homestead for over 150 years Man made stone walls abound on their property, as do old roadbeds Plants that are invasive to the area were pl [...]

    3. I enjoyed this book tremendously and felt seriously homesick for the farm I lived on in central NH during my teens and twenties Part of our land was a big swamp, home to a variety of wildlife we were privileged to watch Teale s book displays his great knowledge of the wild world and its inhabitants, but in a friendly, conversational manner One is never talked down to, but is shared with, as between friends I also liked that most of the time he wrote as we and not I , signifying that this was not [...]

    4. I chose this 1974 book because of the words old farm rather than naturalist I love old houses, old farms and rural life, so it was a natural choice I ended by getting than I expected Edwin Way Teale was a well known and well respected naturalist who wrote beautifully about the world around us While the book has less information about the house and its contents, and information than I expected about plants, birds and insects, it found it a very enjoyable read Now when I m outside, I find myself [...]

    5. One of my all time favorite books Teale s attention to the world around him and his unhurried pace is a breath of fresh air We live with so much manufactured drama indeed, our lives aren t meaningful, so we see everyday, if they don t have drama that a book such as this is an invitation to living our lives a different way.

    6. Wonderful writings about observing nature on his own property and restoring it for native plants and animals Teale was an early nature writer this book dates from the forties who sounds a lot like some of the nature writing today A great read.

    7. Such a peaceful, amusing read It s a bit slow in a pleasant way If you love nature and stories of animals, the land, hiking trails, and very little change in over a decade, this is the book for you.

    8. This book reveals, in stunning detail, the magic that surrounds us if we would only take the time to look and listen.

    9. Edwin Way Teale s brilliant writing brings you right along with him on his walks and animal encounters in the beautiful Connecticut countryside.
