Out in the Country by John J. Mutter, Jr. is a collection of stories based on the author's experiences growing up living over his parents' tavern and general store and then purchasing and living on his own farm in rural Shawano, Wisconsin. In 1966, when he was 23 years old, he bought an old, vacated farmstead. John and his wife, Karen, have steadily made their farmstead a comfortable place for wild critters of all kinds. Many of the stories in this collection are either experiences, or ideas, he has thought up while on this farm.
John wants people to understand that the word "outdoors," is greatly misused. A person can be in the outdoors when they are in the park or a populous city. Out in the Country is a collection of stories about the rural setting. So, slow down, get out of your car - step into the woods with him! Read about some of his pets. Get comfortable by the fireplace, or in your special reading spot, and let him tell you about some of the people he has met in his lifetime.
