They are home.”

The Home Place by J. Drew Lanham
From the fertile soils of love, land, identity, family, and race emerges The Home Place, a big-hearted, unforgettable memoir by ornithologist J. Drew Lanham.
"A beautifully rendered and deeply personal story of the complex geographies of home, and displacement. The Home Place is a deft examination of how we come to define ourselves in a world that, in turn, is relentlessly trying to define who we are—and how we can take those definitions over and make our own. The ghosts of the past are more than just reliquaries of loss and memory; they are resources of our history, our story, our flight through life." — Sierra Magazine
Introducing Jack Naylor’s novel: McCammon
Jack puts together a puzzle, piece by piece, but without the aid of a picture on the box. You will be frustrated with the pieces that ought to fit but don’t, and with that one piece that seems to fit nowhere until it is the only piece left. You may have to step away for a while and come back to this story, like the characters themselves, only when your heart calls you back.
