Woodswoman II is the story of the author's decision to retreat farther, a half-mile behind her main cabin--fashioned after the one in Thoreau's Walden--in which she could write and contemplate. In this book, she writes movingly of her life with two German shepherds as companions, of a sustaining relationship with a man as independent as herself, and of her renewed bond with nature.
