The poet of Tolstoy Park by Sonny Brewer []



In 1925, given only a year to live by his doctor, Henry Stuart leaves his home and grown sons in Idaho to move to the woods on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay, Alabama, where he builds a round house and lives for more than two decades, while visitors make a pilgrimage to visit him on the property he names after Leo Tolstoy. Very quirky, yet lovable character.
