    The Henry Wiggen Novels of Mark Harris There can be no question that sport and athletes seem to be considered less than worthy subjects for writers of serious fiction, an odd fact considering how deeply ingrained in North American culture sport is, and how obviously and passionately North Americans care about it as participants and spectators.

    So here, we were on our next adventure. A man, a woman, a teenage girl, two dogs, a caravan and a trailer; setting up home in the woods. Twenty acres of undulating woodland, made up of hard and soft wood trees, which was unfenced and with no immediate neighbours other than the incumbent wildlife. This was our little piece of rural paradise hidden from everyone, a blank canvas to create whatever we wanted. Living the ‘good life,’ from our perspective, and on a practical level, meant aiming to live

I assumed it was mine, as I never dreamt of any other persons taking residence near my family, or much less any other being roaming the same wooded areas as I. It was never the case, and wasn’t going to be anytime soon. At least, that’s what I personally deliberated. The woods seemed at peace without any stifles to have disturbed the

    tools for splitting firewood. For example a gas or electric wood splitter but these can be very expensive. So we are going to focus on the most economical tool for the job, the mall. While at first glance a mall can be mistaken for an axe but it is much heavier than the latter. A mall is also a little duller then the axe because it is meant for severing and not slicing.
