Review quote

"An entertaining and practical handbook that should be mandatory reading for urban dwellers considering a move to the country." - "Rustik Magazine"

"A nice change from the standard how to, this book may be more of a how not to, but proves equally effective." - "Indie Reader"

"Kristy Athens' observations hold plenty of joys and warnings for urbanites wanting to chuck it all or for those bluesy for the bucolic." - "Publisher's Weekly "
