To the Woods

Sinking Roots, Living Lightly, and Finding True Home

Oregon State University Press
To the Woods is a tale of adventure, inspiration, and living life in concert with nature. It is the true story of Evelyn Searle Hess, who, in her late fifties, walked away from the world of modern conveniences to build a new life with her husband on twenty acres of wild land in the foothills of Oregon’s coast range mountains. To the Woods describes Evelyn’s day-to-day struggles, failures, and discoveries. It tracks the natural history of place through the seasons. It wrestles with issues like human impact on the ecology of our planet.

To the Woods will appeal to anyone interested in the environment, flora, natural history, and alternative lifestyles.

Evelyn Searle directed the University of Oregon’s Biology teaching and research greenhouses for ten years. Since 1992, Evelyn and her husband have been camping on their property in the coast range foothills outside of Eugene, Oregon.
