About the Book

In 1998, Deborah Burford and her husband, David, loaded their cars and trailer with their belongings—along with four cats, two dogs, and one ferret—and departed New Jersey for a new home in the North Georgia mountains. In Love from the Mountains, Deborah shares a compilation of her weekly columns, originally published in The North Georgia News and The Towns County Herald, bringing to life the humorous voices of the animals—both wild and domestic—who share the woods with her. There’s a squirrel named Howard, who taunts Miss Adventure the cat with unsavory language; there’s Mangefur, the opossum who develops a taste for high-priced birdseed, and Bosley and Cosette, the miniature poodles who possess an insatiable appetite for puddle-surfing. Exploring the entertaining world of nature, Deborah includes amusing anecdotes about a hungry bear with an eclectic appetite, a ferret who likes women’s toes, and four mutt cats who rely on their patience to torment other animals crazy enough to traipse into their environment. The true animal stories in Love from the Mountains prove that the furry creatures who share our world with us really do have opinions on just about everything we humans do.
