Editorial Reviews

Urban homesteader Jenna Woginrich worked as a computer designer, but she wanted to live a homespun country life. At the age of 27, she left her Nashville digs and settled into a rented farm in rural Vermont, where she slowly mastered the arts of bee-keeping, raising chickens, sewing her own clothes, and living without 300-channel cable TV. What she learned might not convince you to toss your cell phone and sell your SUV, but, honestly, it will make you at least a little envious. Now in paperback.
