Through a series of themed entries, musings and poems, Minato invites us to eavesdrop on her life-experiment with sustainability in a little cabin in the backwoods of Oregon. We come to know her quirky "landmates," the resident wildlife (including a lizard who survives the spin cycle) and the land itself. Generous helpings of humor, observation and self-reflection.
