THE VIEW FROM PLUM LICK describes the return of David Dick, his wife & their child to his ancestral roots along Plum Lick Creek in Bourbon County, Kentucky, following the author's retirement from CBS News in 1985. They live in an 1850 house, "...where the main thing is the willingness to listen good. Sometimes, especially on a star-filled full-moon night, voices seem to whisper to us, & we answer back from time to time." Celebrating rural values, shepherding, country people & dedicated conservation of the land, this volume has been praised by Wendell Berry, Charles Kuralt, Dan Rather, the Louisville Courier Journal & the Lexington Herald-Leader. The Historian Laureate of Kentucky, Thomas D. Clark, wrote the foreword for THE VIEW FROM PLUM LICK: "David Dick integrates the memories & history of the ancient ancestors who traveled the country roads & worked the Plum Lick fields before him...The author details the occurrences of incidents, minor & consequential, with the grace & spiritual attachment of an Elizabeth Madox Roberts, of Wendell Berry, or a James Still & Jesse Stuart." THE VIEW FROM PLUM LICK touches the lives of humans & other creatures living together in peace.David Dick is the author of 'The View from Plum Lick' with ISBN 9780963288608 and ISBN 0963288601.
