Abstract:

This is a story of two people with different philosophies concerning use of land and attitudes towards animals. What makes their situation unique is that they share abutting property and live on the same road in a small village in Maine. Phil owns the house and land on which he grew up and has always hunted the surrounding land, including the property more recently acquired by Marie. Marie emigrated from Massachusetts with the intention to create a sanctuary for animals. Their polarized views have resulted in strife between them and illustrate the conflict between hunters and non-hunters in Maine.
