The Well: Poems from Twin Pines Farm

is an intimate and evocative suite of poems illuminating the lives of an American farm family. The poems Mohr wrote are drawn from her own experience growing up on the farm in the 1950s and from the contents of a pine trunk filled with family papers, letters, and diaries of her ancestors who established the farm and made it flourish for more than two centuries.

Through the power of her deft and plain-spoken poetry, Mohr conveys most tellingly and completely her family’s relationship with the land and the people. Her remarkable book provides a full and touching account of their aspirations, their contributions of hard work and ingenuity, and their unconquerable ability to thrive whatever the circumstances they encountered.
