The Last Undiscovered PlaceThe Last Undiscovered Place

By David K. Leff

With warmth and a keen eye for the nuances of history and place, David Leff offers this affectionate, insightful portrait of his adopted home of Collinsville, Connecticut, a village that looked perfectly ordinary until he fell prey to its rhythms and charm. The town taught him a new way of seeing his environment, and through this process he discovered what many Americans long for amid the suburban sprawl decried in James Kunstler's The Geography of Nowhere and many other recent books: a sense of community. Publisher: Univ of VA Press
