Look Inside
  • "No matter how strong one’s desire may be to escape the sins of the city, seeking the happiness and social harmony that lies out in the fields, any attempt to regain Eden apart from grace is doomed to fail. Man is wicked, regardless if he walks on grass or cobblestone. After all, the first sin of our first parents occurred far from any madding crowd, in the cool and quiet calm of a pastoral landscape, not a single city in sight." ~From Matthew Huff's introduction

    Look Inside the Book

    “A resolution to avoid an evil is seldom framed till the evil is so far advanced as to make avoidance impossible.” -narrator

    Often things are as crazy in the country as in the town. In this novel by Thomas Hardy, everything in Gabriel Oak's life is upended when a shepherd leads his sheep over the edge of a cliff. After losing his farm, Gabriel moves to another town where he puts his experience to use as a shepherd on Bathsheba Everdene's estate. His mistress Bathsheba loves independence and the values of the city, but Gabriel Oak's commonsense shepherding experience and thrift prove far more reliable and dependable in the long run.

    Watch the madness of the city infect the English countryside in this classic.
