This week a chapter from  My Double Life, Memoirs of a Naturalist by Fran Hamerstrom, one of my all time favorites of her writings.

 Called “A Letter from my Mother-in-Law”, we find her in the beginning of her life as a field biologist,  with her life long partner Fredrick, moving into a farmhouse that Leopold had arranged for them to live in, in Waushara County in the middle of winter,  no running water, no heat except the wood stove and no electricity.
