Get Poor Now concluded in September of 1933, with Henry about to survey the devastation of a forest fire that almost burned up his log shack. A Windfall Homestead takes us into the next two decades of Henrys productive, energetic life, as he logs and hunts, clears land for farming, marries, has children, builds a new barn and house from windfall lumber. Henrys life exemplifies the fate of an essentially preindustrial rural culture about to be overwhelmed by post-World War II technology with its comprehensive commercial culture extruded by fossil fuel affluence.

Henrys was not so much the greatest generation as it was the last unself-conscious rural subsistence generation of European heritage.These stories, all told in Henrys voice, were taken down shortly before Henrys death in 2009 by Henrys son Charles Darwin Buckberry, also known as C. D. or Seedy Buckberry. Seedy claims these stories are accurate and true.Readers are advised to suspend their civilized disbelief.
