That Distant Land includes twenty-three stories from Wendell Berry's Port William membership arranged in their fictional chronology. The book shines forth as a single sustained work, not simply an anthology. It reveals Wendell Berry as a literary master capable of imaginative integrity over decades of writing with a multitude of characters followed over several generations. Combining The Wild Birds (1985), Fidelity (1992), and Watch With Me (1994), and including four never-before-collected stories and a map and geneaology of Port William, this book offers rest for the weary, hope for the beleaguered, and strength for the rest of us.
