Here at Eagle Pond CL

Donald Hall, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $19.95 (141p) ISBN 978-0-89919-978-8
A companion to Seasons at Eagle Pond , these witty and perceptive essays capture the essence of New England, past and present. From his ancestral home in Wilmot, N.H., poet Hall reminisces about his childhood, family history and the pleasures of country life. In ``Rusticus'' he discusses rural culture and its independence, conservatism and sense of continuity. How do New Hampshire citizens feel about their presidential primary? See ``Living Room Politics.'' Hall takes jabs at neighboring Vermont; he ruminates on the weather--the seasons are maple sugar, blackfly, Red Sox and winter--and draws a composite picture of the countryfolk. Hall is to New Hampshire what John Gould is to Maine. (Nov.)
