So, you want to move to the country.
-- from the author's Introduction to Get Your Pitchfork On!: The Real Dirt on Country Living by Kristy Athens. 

After all the expensive massages, lavender footbaths and boxes of herbal tea that I had acquired as an urbanite, I loved that in the country all I had to do to relax was look around me -- the sun setting over the Cascades; the trickle of water flowing through the woods; the juncos shuffling around in the snow looking for fallen thistle seeds and leaving little footprints on the deck.

-- from "Land," the first chapter.

This is terrific! It is a practical, no-nonsense guide for urbanites who want to go live in the country -- and don't we all have those fantasies every now and again?

Thanks go to intrepid publicist, Mary Bisbee-Beek for my copy.  This is right up my Food Freedom alley!
