“Take some books and read; that’s an immense help; and books are always good company if you have the right sort.”

Country Living, Homesteads, and Rural Lifestyles

In and among these books, we hope you’ll discover the joys of country living, homesteading, the rural lifestyle, DIY projects, and home care and keeping. All this and more is yours to unfold as you read about and dream on the possibilities, and realize those that are best suited to your personal life journey. Discover the slower pace of rural living. Enjoy the clarity of quiet focus. Celebrate the restful reward of sound slumber after the work of each day. Savor the sensation of a gentle breeze. Take in the beauty of the changing autumn leaves. Take comfort in warm blankets during the cold of winter’s first snowfall. Delight in the songs of birds in the spring. Connect with what’s most important in life – family, friends, neighbors, and your community.
