Four Seasons with a Grumpy Goat : How I Learnt to Stop Worrying and Love Life on the Farm
A tree change is about finding a simpler life, right? And that's what Carol Altmann and her partner were seeking when they moved to a hobby farm in Tasmania. But things go wrong in a surprising number of ways as they try to adapt to life on the farm surrounded by an odd assortment of animals--a goat that thinks it's a dog, a bunch of amorous ducks, and a collection of vermin with teeth sharp enough to tear through a wall that are hellbent on moving into the kitchen. What looked from afar like an idyllic life turns out to be an education. Add an odd assortment of neighbors and friends and you have an amusing tale about leaving the rat race behind, only to discover more about yourself than you would have found in 10 years of city living.
