A pesar de que la novela se titula Un a o en los bosques, el t tulo creo que atiende a razones comerciales, puesto que en la narraci n se nos hace saber que son 12 a os los que ella, Sue Hubbell Kalamazoo 1935 lleva viviendo all en los bosques, en los Ozarks, al sur de Missouri Aunque la narraci n comprende las cuatro estaciones del a o lo que nos recordar a Una temporada en Tinker Creek sus recuerdos comprenden esos 12 a os a mediados de los a os 70 del pasado siglo XX , tanto el nacimiento de [...]

Durante los ltimos doce a os he aprendido que los arboles necesitan espacio para crecer, que los coyotes cantan junto al arroyo en enero, que las abejas saben m s que yo sobre la fabricaci n de miel, que el amor puede convertirse en tristeza y que hay m s preguntas que respuestas.

When reading A Country Year I was continually reminded of Oscar Wilde s apology for sending a long letter he did not have time to write a short one Sue Hubbell has taken the time to write a short book filled with concise gems, each as long as it should be and no longer, and I am much the richer for having read it.Other than the transcendent writing, what impressed me most was Sue s eye and mind She notices things that I would not, and then she reflects upon them and understands them better than [...]

This is one of my favorite books of all time I have reread it countless times because Hubbell s memoir of her life in the midst of nature in rural Missouri never fails to transport me away and bring my mind back refreshed and see the natural world in whatever less than idyllic place I m living Her work really reminds me to be aware of all the creatures and plants around me and notice how they make a living and interact with the human world And her insights on how to live the questions of life th [...]

Sue Hubbell und ihr Mann waren typische Aussteiger, denen ihre sicheren Arbeitspl tze eines Tages viel zu behaglich geworden waren Sie kauften eine Farm in Missouris Ozark Mountains, idyllisch gelegen zwischen einem Nationalpark und einer weiteren Fl che, die unter Naturschutz steht Da sie von Landwirtschaft nichts verstanden, begannen sie, Bienen zu halten und von der Imkerei zu leben Sue Hubbell brachte als Biologin f r das Leben auf dem Land zumindest die theoretischen Grundlagen mit Ihr Vate [...]

Leben auf dem Land, frei von Verkehr, Hetze und dem L rm der Zivilisation Das w nschen sich viele aber nur wenige halten das aus.Denn dass das Leben auf dem Land, sollte man da seinen Lebensunterhalt noch verdienen m ssen ziemlich anstrengend ist und einen vor manchmal unvorhergesehene Situationen und vielleicht ungebetene G ste stellt, das kann man in diesem interessanten autobiografischen Buch von Sue Hubbell nachlesen.Sicher wird es einem beim Lesen bewusst, wie leicht man es in der Zivilisat [...]

I don t know how many times I have read this book all time favorite I still remember how it found me on the shelves of Willard Public Library in the 1990s I ve carried my tattered paperback that bears her autograph with me all these years I was inspired to read it again while camping this summer, feeling the urge to take a solo trip in the future It has been at least a decade since I last picked it up Once I opened it, I knew I needed Sue to remind me how she made a life her own way This time I [...]

Sue Hubble s reflections on life as a beekeeper in the Ozarks is quiet, introspective and tinged with an edge of melancholy This book is not quite in the league with Edwin Way Teale s A Walk Through the Year, or Henry Beston s The Outermost House, but it is a well written and interesting look at natural history and human nature.


Kathryn

This book was just okay for me I learned tons about animals, insects, birds and raising bees for honey, but the book lacked a story or even thoughts by the author It is much of a journaling of the occurrances on the Ozark acreage by season Very interesting all in all, I just would have liked a bit of a story line.


Jessie Gussman

Despite the fact that the author writes something I emphatically disagree with in every single chapter, and her conclusions are not mine at all, I love her easy, calm writing style and the details and random information she has planted throughout her writing.

Sue Hubbell, author of A Book of Bees And How to Keep Them a delightful book which has as much to do with naturalism and our place in nature as it does about bees lives in the Ozark mountains on some 95 100 acres where she maintains 300 beehives throughout the surrounding hills She writes extremely well, and in this book she reflects on nature s intricacies and queerness and man s place in the world She and the reader become captivated by such oddities as the chigger whose chewing on the human f [...]

Hacerlo f cil siempre es lo m s complicado.Dar forma a un sentimiento, expresar tus ideas, explicar una forma de vida de manera sencilla, cotidiana y natural No importa a qu lo apliques Prescindir de artificios y reducir lo que te propones comunicar o elaborar a su esencia me parece una tarea peliaguda Y esto es lo que hace Sue Hubbell en este libro Narrar con simplicidad.No hay trampa ni cart n Un a o en los bosques es, simple y llanamente, un a o de Sue en sus amados Ozarks, entre sus bosques [...]

After a really long or really magnificent book, I always have to take a break and read something simple and easy Wide line spacing, 6th grade vocabulary, no than 200 pages It s like a palate cleanser for the brain That s what this book was the crackers to my wine And thank goodness for that, because I was barely upset by its mediocrity I ve read a lot of books about lives in seclusion mostly because I plan to spend my retirement years as a mountain bound recluse and am preparing myself via memo [...]

When I ran into my 8th grade biology teacher about a month and a half ago my favorite science teacher of all time, hands down , we naturally had a discussion combining the subjects that we teach science and literature Once we professed our mutual love for Barbara Kingsolver, she recommended Sue Hubbell to me.What an awesome book Maybe I appreciate it because she reflects on life in the Ozarks and observes the flora and fauna I m familiar with, but her calm and intriguing style is accessible to [...]


David Rudin

What a lovely and special book It is broken into short chapters, each a vignette about some facet of country life There are chapters on local characters, snakes, frogs, flowers, even chiggers and of course her bees Hubbell includes short primers on various aspects of natural history, a bit about her life, current and former, and a lot about the slow paced existence she relishes in the backwoods of the Missouri Ozarks.Her writing is straightforward but nonetheless compelling She is an able storyt [...]

Al comprar este libro me esperaba encontrar una especie de manual de supervivencia en un entorno monta oso aislado de alguien novato Una especie de Robinson Crusoe de las monta as de Misuri.Sin embargo me he encontrado con otra cosa, a n m s absorbente La autora, ya plenamente integrada en su trabajo apicultora y en su entorno una zona rural, pero ni aislada ni de alta monta a , reflexiona sobre los acontecimientos que le van pasando en peque os cap tulos de 3 4 p ginas.Pero sobre todo observa O [...]

Sue Hubbell writes short essays about life in the Ozarks She lived alone on a hilltop in the Ozarks earning her living as a commercial beekeeper for twelve years The essays are about beekeeping, nature and people in the Ozarks.The essays on nature evoke the beauty of the Ozarks Some reflect on the attitudes and treatment this beauty receives from people Others describe the plants and animals living around the author.Beekeeping commercially is challenging Many of these essays end up being humorou [...]

I read about Hubbell in Writer s Almanac While this was my first read of Hubbell, it will not be the last I m a fan of outdoor seasonal essays I ve read Terry Burger s Year of the Moon Goose which was excellent and started my hunt for other such books I m in the midst of acquiring and reading books by Marcia Bonta, a naturalist writer from Pennsylvania Hubbell ranks right up there with what I ve read so far I acquired a healthy respect for what a single woman could achieve on a farm She cuts and [...]

Un tout petit peu, mini de rien du tout d ue du style d criture se rapprochant plus de la r daction d un article que d un roman Ce n est pas tr s litt raire C est plut t une chronique, un genre de journal relatant une ann e dans la vie de Sue Hubbell, la Dame aux abeilles Elle relate ses observations de la nature et de ses habitants Elle nous raconte les difficult s de vivre seule au milieu de la nature, ses t ches quotidiennes, mais elle retrace surtout sa vie avec ses abeilles Sue Hubbell est [...]

I still have Winter to read yet, but I read the rest in less than two days For the same reasons I like Chapter November in Sand County Almanac Aldo Leopold , which I think are philosophical ones, I love the thoughts in this book It s the thoughts that have captivated me, and I ve been so absorbed in them that I haven t noticed if the writing is good or not I m assuming it is, because I haven t noticed it, like good movie music.If I can find other books that make me this excited to read besides L [...]


Tara

A wonderfully slow read Its wandering nature reminded me a bit of Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Dillard my all time favorite book It s a one time read, I think but definitely worth that one time Side note I was worried it was going to be about divorce but that was not a big part of the book nor was it dealt with bitterly or awkwardly.


Jennifer Conner

This is one of the greatest snapshots of Ozark living I ve ever read From copperheads,to local lore, to splitting wood Hubbell took a deep sadness borne from her broken 30 year marriage and instead of dwelling, turned her life into a reflection of the beauty she found living a simple, yet glorious, life in the Ozarks.


Peter

A series of essays, observations by the author of her Ozark existence as a bee keeper A keen observer of nature and commentator on the Ozark scene The book is in the tradition of Thoreau It moves a slow country pace.


Debbi

Pretty interesting non fiction about a divorced 50ish woman who now lives alone on the Ozarks bee keeping farm her and her husband started Learned a lot about bees but also the different bird species around there as well as the wildlife and what her life is like.
