Though work as a journalist carried Charles across the globe, it’s a small, simple cabin on a country road in the Northern Ozarks that never fails to bring him pleasure and respite.
For the last five months, videographer Dave Burkhardt has spent hot days, misty mornings and chilly evenings with him in St. Clair County, recording the rhythms of life in and around the rustic structure.
From fishing expeditions on Lake Katie (named for Gusewelle’s wife) or hunting for morel mushrooms, to the annual gathering of old friends who wouldn’t dream of missing turkey season, “Away From It All” gives us an intimate glimpse at the little clearing in the woods where the author’s heart lives.
“I’ve led a remarkably lucky life,” Charles likes to say, and the stories he’s compiled attest to that. With this visually rich production he graciously reveals to those who’ve only been able to read about “the cabin,” the many ways it has inspired and nurtured his writing, his family, and friendships as well.
