I last read this book ...

I last read this book probably at least 35 years ago, and was surprised at how much I still love it. I read it tonight on Google Books because my Grandma's copy of this is packed away somewhere in my parent's attic. This story, of a very Thoreau-ish young man who lives in the country on 600 acres devoted to medicinal plants and herbs, manages to strike a melancholic note without meaning to. Even a hundred years ago he was on a mission to preserve the disappearing flora from the Indiana country side that had been used in traditional and western medicine. I couldn't help but feel how much more we've probably lost in the hundred years since this book was written. The prose is over-wrought by today's standards, but the story of the plants and the noble man behind their cultivation, and his lovely pure-hearted romance of the delicate and sickly young woman that he comes to love still managed to tug at my heart. It's just a beautiful story and you can't help wishing that there were more men today like David Langston, the Harvester.
