This Life Is In Your Hands

Coleman, Melissa
The author's parents move to Maine, buy a piece of land from Helen and Scott Nearing, and start an organic farm. I REALLY enjoyed reading this memoir as I have read of the Nearings in Mother Earth News back in the day. From reading this I am sure I did not have the gumption to go "back to the land". Excellent book! Read the Uncorrected Proof edition.
