In this award-winning, true-life tale for gardeners, nature-lovers, and dreamers of all ages, Little Farm in the Foothills follows a midlife couple's pursuit of the "new" Great American Dream-living closer to the land-as Susan and her husband John start growing their own organic food, living more simply, and transforming an old clearcut into a little homestead.

For the two fifty-somethings, figuring out how to raise food on their logging slash-covered acreage seemed like a modest goal...at first. But Susan and John discover an adventure that is more life-changing than they envisioned-facing more adversity, yet more joys than they ever could have imagined.

Little Farm in the Foothills is not a memoir about farming...it's a warmhearted story of making a dream come true. As. As Susan writes of their Foothills home, "it's not a farm, it's not even a 'farmette, ' but it's the dream of a farm."
