Rural Free : A Farmwife's Almanac of Country Living Paperback / softback



Rural Free, first published in 1961, beautifully conveys the joys of family life on an Indiana farm.

Marked by the slow pace and rich variety of seasonal change, Rachel Peden's narrative offers an authentic month-by-month chronicle of her family's daily adventures.

Today, as the slow-food movement gathers support and more urban dwellers return to the land to plant roots again in honest soil, Peden's stories of country life and her lessons on sustainability, frugality, and wastefulness gain a special resonance.

Rural Free will be a source of inspiration for all who rejoice in rural virtues and the spiritual freedom of country life.
