Look at the author of this Common Ground. Amazing.
I have almost finished Brende's Better Off and while it certainly peaked my interest, it left me wanting much more. I want an insiders view of farm life and rural community. So today at the library I found a few gems. The one that I will start reading is called Rural Free, A Farm Wife's Almanac of Country Living. by Rachel Peden. She also has another book of journals that I think I will purchase online. I also checked out Keith Stewart's It's a Long Road to a Tomato, Tales of an Organic Farmer who Quit the Big City for the (not so) Simple Life, and This Common Ground, Season's of an Organic Farm by Scott Chaskey. I want to go to a farm and read all day.
