Discover the realities of moving to the country with this wonderfully humorous memoir from a woman who lived to tell the tale! Moving to the country. Embracing a simpler, more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Growing your own food. Making do with less. These are familiar fantasies for city dwellers, especially in the wake of a worldwide financial meltdown...but what really happens when you quit the relative ease of urban living for a country lane in the middle of nowhere? Sonia Day reveals all in this humorous memoir. After stumbling across an old house in the country one humid July day, she fell under its strange spell. She and her spouse sold up, said goodbye to the city and embraced a radically different world, miles from the nearest convenience store. They confronted the expected realities of country living, and many unexpected ones as well - marijuana farms, firearms, and conniving squirrels, to name but a few. It wasn't all the stuff of 'back to the land' dreams, yet they persevered, often with hilarious results, and now share their experience.
Sonia Day is the award- winning author of a number of gardening books.
