About Don Mitchell


+ABOUT THE AUTHOR=

Don Mitchell was born in the Midwest and educated in southeastern Pennsylvania. After college he spent time in San Francisco (as a hippie), in Los Angeles (as a Screenwriter) and in Greece (as a hermit) before moving to Vermont in 1973. An obsessive carpenter, he has designed and built half a dozen buildings on his 150-acre farm, including the passive solar house where he lives with his wife and children. A sheperd for over two decades, he has produced several thousand lambs and many tons of wool. A member of the faculty of Middlebury College, he has taught literature and various creative writing courses, including workshops on screenwriting. Mitchell is the author fo six other books including the novel Thumb Tripping, three "Upcountry" essay collections about life in Vermont, and a philosophic fable, The Souls of Lambs.

Luke Powell, a resident of Middlebury, is best known for his landscape photography, especially for his dye-transfer process prints of people and places around the world. His images have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
