Country Life

A Handbook for Realists and Dreamers
A non fiction book by

An enduring dream for many people, regardless of where they live in modern times, is that of living in the country, raising food and livestock, being partially or fully self-sustaining, and working directly with the land. In Country Life, Heiney shows the reader what's involved in turning that dream into some kind of reality, working on the basic premise that anyone with the will to do it can bring at least a small portion of home farming into his life, even if it means starting with a small window box in the middle of the city. He presents the basics of home farming, care of livestock, gardening for food, raising field crops, and preparing food from the crops and animals one has raised by hand. Charmingly illustrated with colorful drawings and hundreds of photographs, this book is meant to inspire and motivate the would-be farmer, and it will. --Mark A. Hetts
