After a long and distinguished academic career, both as an administrator and scholar, Carlisle decided to return to this roots. In searching for his father, Ervin Carlisle (Carlisle school was named after him), he also rediscovered his birthplace.
Fred Carlisle has been writing about identity and place for years. He is the author of four previous books—two memoirs, and studies of Walt Whitman and of Loren Eiseley. A former provost at Virginia Tech, he grew up in Ohio, enjoyed a long academic career, lived for a decade in the rural Virginia mountains, and now divides his time between Virginia and South Florida.
