A Very Small Farm
by William Paul Winchester and Carol Stanton




Overview -
In the tradition of Thoreau's Walden, William Paul Winchester offers a chronicle of everyday life on Southwind, his farm of twenty acres.

His philosophy, like his lifestyle, is simple, yet profoundly wise. William Paul Winchester graduated from the University of Tulsa with a degree in botany.
