The Home Place: A Memory and a Celebration: The Restored Text
Book: The Home Place: A Memory and a Celebration: The Restored Text , by Robert Drake, ISBN10: 0865545944, ISBN13: 9780865545946, Mercer University Press, April 1998, Paperback
History and geography helped give the Drakes their identities: they knew who they were because they knew where they were and when they were, with no alienation from either time or place. Their lives were thus whole and full. Their home, their family, their community were all very real entities, nourishing and sustaining the individual while giving him a sense of belonging to something greater than himself. They gave order and meaning to life. The times have changed, but who can say that the world of the Drakes is any less meaningful for us today? Perhaps the memories of that world constitute a rebuke to our frenetic lives. But perhaps the legacy of their lives, their times, and, above all, their great love, can still exert its healing power on modern generations.
