Forty Acres and a Fool by Roger L. Welsch

Book Description

At a time when so much manliness is played out on keyboards and remote controls, it takes a certain degree of grit and guts and plain pigheadedness to pull up stakes and move to the country. For those brave souls, the backward-looking gentleman farmers of our fast-forward-looking age, Roger Welsch has a few choice words. From his Nebraskan vantage point, Welsch presents a guy's guide to leaving modern miracles behind and embracing productive Ludditism. He elaborates the principles of feng shui for the farmhouse, barn, and farmyard. And, he draws on a lifetime's worth of experience to counsel prospective migrants to rural America on what precisely not to do. Learn from the mistakes of a master, and laugh harder than you thought possible while doing it. Roger Welsch is in fine fettle in Down on the Farm, a light-hearted look at rural upstarts that puts the delights of country living - and the occasional advantages of urban life - into rare perspective.
