Larkspur Press

Even in this era of electronic communication and virtual libraries, some folks still appreciate the look and feel of a good old-fashioned book. And that’s just the kind produced by the Larkspur Press in the tiny Owen County town of Monterey.

Using hand-set type, rich papers, and craftsmanship that draws on centuries of tradition, owner Gray Zeitz turns out books meant to be treasured. Larkspur has published works by farmer/poet Wendell Berry, monk/social critic Thomas Merton—and Zeitz himself, a poet in his spare time.

Green County trail ride

If you ask these guys, it’s the only way to travel! For a scenic end to this episode, come along with a group of Central Kentucky friends—and some enthusiasts from points much farther—on a trail ride that’s become a much-anticipated annual event. You’ll find plenty of beautiful Green County farmland, lots of well-tended and well-mannered horses, wagons of all varieties, and, after hours on the trail, a potluck feast by the river.
