An American Homeplace by Donald McCaig
May 1 - May 31
This is the fourth installment in the new Virginia House Book Club brought to you by a partnership between Shrine Mont and University of Virginia Press
A two-hour drive from Shrine Mont, Highland County, Virginia, became the adopted home of writer, Donald McCaig, and his wife, Anne (and the ancestral home of Mary Moomaw!), where they lived in an 18th century farmhouse and raised dogs and sheep in an idyllic environment. This book is the engaging story of two transplanted New Yorkers and their introduction to Western Virginia.
