"In the summer of 1964, Timothy Findley and his companion, William Whitehead, were romantics who believed that a tumbledown, vacant, nineteenth-century farmhouse on fifty acres of land just outside Cannington, Ontario could be turned into a home, workplace, and haven. With the considerable help of neighbours, the duo did manage to rescue the property from decay. Findley named it "Stone Orchard" as a tribute to his favourite writer, Chekhov, and because stones were its only true crop for a while." ; B&W Illustrations; 0.6 x 8.5 x 5.8 Inches; 170 pages.
