This chapter describes Still’s first year home after his discharge from the Army. One story “Cedar of Lebanon” is loosely based on his process of reintegration. Included in the chapter are excerpts from a 1947 diary in which he recorded daily activities. He preserved his independence but also experienced isolation. In 1950 and 1951 he returned to Yaddo but was not able to regain his pre-war levels of productivity and publication.

Keywords:   Dead Mare Branch, reintegration, 1947 diary, Yaddo, low productivity
