In 1968 two gay young men - one white, one black - quixotically decided to buy eighty backwoods acres in southern Mississippi, little realizing that they were embarking on the greatest adventure of their lives. Don Schueler's account of the twenty-five years that followed, during which he and Willie Brown transformed their "least worst land" into a wild Eden, is a modern saga by turns suspenseful, very funny, and deeply moving.

DON SCHUELER is the author of four other books, including Temple of the Jaguar and Incident at Eagle Ranch. Formerly a professor of English at the University of New Orleans, he still lives at the Place in southern Mississippi and in New Orleans.
