Mercer Books

The life experiences of he Mercer family as they constructed and developed their cabin atop a mountain in the Shenandoah range.

The focus is on the trials they faced because of the remoteness. These trials are related with a sense of humor (e.g., the involvement of mountain "gremlins") The interaction with the flora and fauna helped to build consciousness relative to the world we live in.

After forty years, the family members still immensely enjoy the solitude and communion with nature.


Excerpt

Parents, Kate and Earnest heard a loud noise that seemed to come from inside the cabin. Arising and checking for the source, they returned to bed when they saw nothing to be concerned about. But, next morning they discovered the screen on the window above the kitchen sink had been pushed in by a bear trying to gain entrance.

Another time, Earnest was sitting on the deck reading when a strange clicking noise interrupted. It turned out to be made from the claws of a large black bear that was coming on the deck. There was a face to face confrontation.
