Panturle lives in the nearly deserted village of Aubignane, in the Provenal uplands. That autumn, Gaubert, the blacksmith, "a little man all mustache," had left; and before the winter was out, the well-sinker's widow had left as well. Then only Panturle remained, a man made morose almost to the point of madness by his solitude. He gave up planting and lived off what he could catch. Then out of the blue a woman arrived, someone to live for, someone to till the soil and plant new seed for. Even a village can be raised from the dead.
