Awards and honors
A number of our authors started writing about their passions forty or more years ago. Some of them are gone now, but many are still working and writing. Over the years others have joined us, offering new techniques and new solutions to the challenges of country life. Collectively, they have inspired millions of readers to do things for themselves, whether it's home building, animal husbandry, growing and preserving food, composting, soap making, or countless other practical skills.

To this group of talented and inspiring authors, this book is respectfully dedicated.
First words
For most people, country living implies a comfortable home with land, a healthful natural life, and a real chance to enjoy the outdoor world. The good news is that despite urban and suburban sprawl, there are thousands of places where it is still pleasant to live in the United States.
