    I really wanted to love this book I love farming memoirs, particularly when they re about city people moving to the country and learning everything for the first time something I aspire to This book was definitely filled with pretty good stories and a nice country feel as other reviewers have mentioned My problem is that it was just boring I couldn t figure out why I wasn t finding it compelling at all I mean, it has the first timer mistakes, the lessons learned, the wildlife stories, etc Also, [...]

    Such a sweet memoir, written by a woman about her family s experiences when they decided to move from Chicago and buy a farm in rural Indiana The story had a tone and style similar Barbara Kingsolver s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle , so if you enjoyed that, you ll enjoy this one I also appreciated the additional bonus this book had in the 100 pages of recipes and farming food prep instructions it had at the back of the book There were lots of fun little anecdotes throughout the story and I apprecia [...]

    Probably what was most appealing about this book is the fact that these people followed their dreams and made a wonderful life for themselves on a farm after being big city folks for much of their lives I loved the insights and thoughts about their transition to a slower, peaceful lifestyle Sort of a Laura Ingalls Wilder pioneer feel to the story.The writing style is clean, simple and very straightforward a reflection of the life these folks created And the book includes some great recipes, too [...]

    I picked this book up several years ago after we had moved from the city to a farm in southern Indiana While we were busy setting up our own farm, I was too busy to read it Now that we have given up the farm and are living in the woods, I was able to enjoy Murphey s story of their trials and triumphs Made me want to spend time sitting still in the woods and enjoying the wildlife all around us Nice read.

    Simple story about a couple that moved from Chicago to Brown County, Indiana with their daughter The last 2 3 of the book was recipes and other information that might be helpful if you are interested I found it sweet and interesting I like to daydream about what it would be like to live places and this gave me a little insight Brown County, Indiana is a beautiful place close to Indianapolis where I live and I ve been there many many times.

    Sweet book about a family who moves from the city of Chicago to the rural area of Brown County Picked this book up at a library used book sale, and remembered I had it when I was exploring retirement to the Brown County area It is from 1994 so I am sure many things have changed, but I loved reading about their farming adventures.

    I found this book enchanting During a trip to Brown County I was looking for a book about that locale to enjoy later I love Brown County go there once a year.It was an easy, funny read about big city people transporting themselves into a rural life It was funny sweet I grew up on a farm could relate to her stories about the country life style.

    One of my favorite books I just completed my fourth reading of this book Why do I love it so much The writing is fantastic, the dream is one I share, and it is a reminder of the beauty in the very smallest of things.

    I haven t yet ran on to Sally Ann since moving to Bloomington, but I would like to I d like to swap flower starts with her and recipes and sit in the park and listen to music with her Her book is relaxing and lovely Everything I love about this area of Indiana, she expresses.

    I enjoyed this account of a Chicago family moving to Brown County, Indiana, to run a farm and raise their daughter We live down the road, and the critters that she describes might be the ones in our back yard.

    I love this book It really captures what rural living,and Brown County Southern Indiana, living is all about.I read it several years ago and am currently re reading it.

    Having tried a garden for the first time this summer gave me a true appreciation for some of the issues they faced I could never do what they did but it was fun to get a taste.

    It was so picturesque it was kind of boring, but I really enjoyed the little tid bits of information she wove into the story.

    Written by a local woman about her transition to farm life in Brown County, Indiana A bit stilted at times, but a fun read for the hometown aspect.

    Really liked it Cute little book about homesteading

    So far it contains some interesting insightful parts Takes place in Brown Co IN so there is local interest.

    A lovely story To short, would have liked to read .

    I first read this book back in the late 90 sd still own a beaten up copy A lovely, easy, and even inspiring readWould suggest.

    Well told story plus awesome recipes and ideas at the end.
