Have you ever dreamed of leaving everything behind and moving to the country? Back in the 1970s hundreds of lesbians did just that. Hawk Madrone and her "land partner" purchased an old farm in rural Oregon and set about making a new life. Madrone's book sometimes reads like a journal entry as she faces the triumphs and obstacles of living a country life. There are chapters on lost loves, dealing with skunks in the henhouse and the visit of elderly mother. Although sometimes long on description and short on action, this is a sweet book that I would recommend to anyone who's ever dreamed of living a simpler life.
