Overview


In 1968 two gay young men - one white, one black - quixotically decided to buy eighty backwoods acres in southern Mississippi, little realizing that they were embarking on the greatest adventure of their lives. Don Schueler's account of the twenty-five years that followed, during which he and Willie Brown transformed their "least worst land" into a wild Eden, is a modern saga by turns suspenseful, very funny, and deeply moving.

I still remember the love I felt reading this book when it first came out. Don and Willie are unwitting heroes. Schueler writes so beautifully the book belongs on shelves everywhere!
