How To Eat A Beaver
Carol Leonard is considered one of the forerunners – or foremothers – of the modern midwifery movement. She was the first midwife certified to practice legally in New Hamsphire back in 1982, and has since delivered more than 1,200 babies safely in their homes. That story is covered in her memoir, “Lady’s Hands, Lion’s Heart: A Midwife’s Saga.”
Today, we’re focusing on a collection of essays on some of the other facets of Carol’s life…like aspiring tree farmer, would-be trapper, and owner, with her husband of Bad Beaver Farm in Ellsworth, Maine. The collection is called Bad Beaver Tales.
