A First Timer's Guide to Country Living
by Nick and Anita Evangelista

Wanna get away from the rat race? Considering a move to the country? Author Nick and Anita Evangelista moved from the pollution-filled skies of Los Angeles, California to the fresh air of the Missouri Ozark Mountains in 1985, with that thought in mind. This book shares the experience of their move back to the land with the reader.

From the introduction: "Our goal in writing this book about the hazards of farm and country was not to be disparaging of the experience. W 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.

Chapters include:

* To move or not to move?

* Preparing to move

* You're there. Now what?

* Systems, Dominos, and one-cow economics

* Protection yourself

* Still going? Some things to think about

* And much, much more.
