About the Book

NO SAGE "has a unique voice and perspective, it''s written with grace and economy, and it is full of wisdom. It made a deep impression on me and it has stayed with me...(it) rewards (the reader) with a complex view of agricultural life in relation to human ecology and the farmer''s psyche. It has much to teach us."

• John Tallmadge, author of Meeting the Tree of Life


About the Author

Ralph Thurston grows five acres of cutflowers in Southeast Idaho with his wife, watercolorist Jeriann Sabin. The area''s short growing season provides time for him to write reflective essays on the micro- and macroscopic aspects of life in a disappearing rural setting. His work has appeared in The Georgia Review and other literary magazines, as well as in the small farm-oriented newsletter, Growing For Market. No Sage: Essays From the Margin, his collection of essays on trapping, leafcutter bee raising, cutflower growing, and the ecology of self, mind, time and place was a finalist for the 2002 Idaho Book Award..
