My father, my husband, our two-year-old son and I left a comfortable life in the city for the dream of a homemade life in the mountains. We were tough. We had read all about homesteading. We thought we knew what we were getting into.
As it turned out, we didn't have a clue.
We laughed and cried. We felt a good deal of fear, and some pain. We lost lots of money. Then I wrote a memoir about it: A Good, Good Life: How Not to Homestead.
I hope you'll want to read it.
