    living with nature in an Appalachian region

    The local legend and mountain sage of the Appalachians of western North Carolina Zoro Guice told the author, 'If a man goes out in the woods and just sits down in one place for long enough, all of nature and everything he needs to know will eventually pass before him like a parade.' And so Crowe--poet, publisher, and recording artist--took up residence in the Appalachians for four years, and writes about the 'parade.' As in Thoreau's 'Walden,' Crowe writes about how he subsisted in the wild and what he learned from this. But moving somewhat beyond 'Walden' in content and form, Crowe writes more about what goes on beyond himself; and some passages are in the form of verse. Not so meticulous or contained as 'Walden,' 'Zoro's Field' reflects on modernity's effects on the tie with nature, environmental concerns, and changes which have come to the area. Though different in ways from Thoreau's classic which it cannot help but be compared with, Crowe's work in this same genre holds its own as an engaging, thought-inducing memoir.
