Read full description of the books:
While working on a doomed book about commuting, Tim Brookes developed an odd affection for dirt roads. This led him to study his own driveway, a tiny dirt road, a masterpiece of inconvenience, a many-mooded borderlands in the balance of power between order and chaos. The result: The Driveway Diaries, a well-balanced mix of poignant and humorous observations about nature, the seasons and family life.
Tim Brookes is the author of A Hell of a Place to Lose a Cow, which was selected as one of the top travel books of the year by The New York Times and Booklist. He has lived for two decades in Vermont, where he teaches and writes.

Read information about the authorI was born in England to parents who were poor, honest, and loved nothing more than going for long walks, preferably in the rain. My education consisted of being forced to take written exams every five or six weeks, and eat school lunches of liver and onions-until I got to Oxford, where we had written exams every eight weeks and had lunches of pickled onions and Guinness.
This was quite enough to make me flee the country and seek gainful employment in Vermont, where I have lived for 24 years, writing a great deal, playing the guitar, carving endangered alphabets, and trying to grow good raspberries.
