Título: Ham-Farir: The Faring of Matthew Thorin Dier...
Condición del libro: New
Tipo de libro: Paperback
Two groups of unlikely companions have converged on the idyllic Deer Hill home of horror novelist Daniel Westforth Whittier in order to recall the bizarre events they experienced a year before in the summer and fall of 2003, ostensibly to furnish him with the plot for a new book. But Daniel's guests soon reveal that something truly inexplicable and almost unbelievable has shattered the customary tranquility of rural Ross County, Pennsylvania--something that has shaped the history of the county and of Daniel's own family.
Their tales revolve around the enigmatic family known as the Dier who lived on Deer Hill in the 1880s. Several waves of murder and destruction in Ross County linked to the presence of the Dier have fixed them in local folklore, and the memory of the family's violent end still haunts the darkened woods and ruined Victorian homes that dot the countryside.
The men and women who became entangled in the horrific and wondrous saga of the Dier must face the repercussions of their encounters with extraordinary forces. For some, the experience confirmed persistent whispers of lingering evil; for others, it was an unforeseen journey into a realm of terror and sublime beauty. Who-or-what were the Dier, and what was their ultimate fate? The answers to these questions will challenge each participant's convictions, and may hold dire consequences for their futures and that of Ross County itself.
Montague Whitsel, an earthen poet and philosopher rooted and sourced in the woods of western Pennsylvania, holds degrees in anthropology, sociology, history, and theology. In addition to teaching at the college and university levels, Mr. Whitsel has provided private instruction in a variety of spiritualities, including Celtic traditions. As an evolutionist deeply interested in the relationship between science and art, he is exploring the revelations of science and how they inform and enrich our lives. Mr. Whitsel is currently working to develop a philosophy of the imagination as a part of a spirituality grounded in science.
