Moving to the Country at 50Book - 2009
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 dirt road 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 more unexpected ones (marijuana grow ops, firearms, and conniving squirrels, to name a few). It wasn't all the stuff of "back to the land" dreams, yet they persevered-with hilarious results.
