Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

In this family saga, generations mine the Vermont earth and come to rest in it. Lyman Converse is too young to fight in the Civil War, but he lives to see his own son enlist in World War I. Through all the years his closest friend is Easy, an escaped black slave who took refuge in his father's house. Everything Converse values most is gradually lost to time, including the family-owned soapstone quarry. The Quarry invites readers to escape into private lives worth caring about--and to feel the national history that they could not escape. Originally published in 1947 and considered one of Mildred Walker's richest novels, "The Quarry" is introduced by Ripley Hugo, Walker's daughter. Hugo edited, with James Welch, "The Real West Marginal Way: A Poet's" "Autobiography" by Richard Hugo.
