Abstract:

Follows a midlife couple's pursuit of the new Great American Dream-living closer to the land-as they start growing their own organic food, living locally, and transforming an old clear cut into a little homestead. At the time Susan and her husband John first conceived the notion of having a country place, they'd settled in a comfortable and convenient home in the city, happily raising some vegetables and berries in the back yard. Being experienced gardeners, they figured that relocating would be no big deal-they'd expand the garden a little, have a bit more peace and quiet. So they bought 10 acres in the middle of the woods and prepared to pretty much transfer that comfortable town life to the new property. But this modest plan becomes an adventure that is more life-changing than they could have ever imagined. There was so much to this new life they never faced before-for starters, the back-breaking labor of breaking ground by hand and wildlife predation of their first crops. Despite a tight budget and many roadblocks along the way, they must also cope with unexpected adversity like isolation, infrastructure failures, and extreme weather.
