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.

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.
