Wanna get out of the rat race? Dreaming of making a move to the country? Authors Nick and Anita Evangelista moved from Los Angeles to the Missouri Ozark Mountains in 1985, with that dream in mind. This book shares their experiences with the reader and offers indispensable advice on moving back to the land.
From the Introduction:
'Our goal in writing this book about the hazards of farm and country was not to be disparaging of the experience. We had, and have, no intention of scaring off potential homesteaders with horrors of blood-lusting chickens and renegade sheep.
'We love living in the country, and we enjoy our farm. We would no more think of moving back to the city than we would of living at the bottom of the sea. This is a book about real country experiences, failures and successes.'
Blood-Lust Chickens and Renegade Sheep contains real stories, real experiences, real advice and real country lore from two veterans of country living. It is not a cheerleading gung-ho book full of false promises and pipe dreams. The Evangelistas give you the real lowdown on moving to the country. No one thinking of moving to the country should be without this book.
Anita Evangelista is the author of numerous books on country living, including: Backyard Meat Production, How to Develop a Low-Cost Family Food-Storage System, and How to Live Without Electricity -- and Like it!
