Overview

One of Kentucky's most treasured collections of essays, The View from Plum Lick, continues to warm hearts and win friends throughout the world.

From the lady in the yellow bonnet, Ma Boyd, to A Reason For Plum, from the sidesplitting humor of The Baloney Sandwich to the sensitive pathos of the stories of Ewedawg and Lambdawg, and from the sweetness of The Orphan Lamb to More Miracles on Plum Lick, retired CBS News Correspondent David Dick has redirected his remarkable skill for distilling the essence of true stories by spending time with his subjects on their home ground and taking the time to listen carefully. It is time well spent.

The universality of David Dick's modern agrarianism, his rich sense of place and his advocacy for individualism reach out to connect with a global readership, a wider community.

"Most people don't rob banks or take hostages. Most people live quiet, good, and honorable lives," says the reporter who won an Emmy for his coverage of the shooting of Alabama Governor George C. Wallace during one of his presidential campaigns.

The View from Plum Lick is a magical elixir, and the world will feel better about itself for having read it.

Plum Lick...a real place in real time...is also a promising, peaceful state of mind.
