Leigh Tate with 5 Acres & A Dream has published a book based on her popular blog.  I helped edit this book so I definitely can say it is an invaluable addition to any library (I have ordered my copy already).  If you liked Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver or Sylvia’s Farm by Sylvia Jorrin, then you are going to love Leigh’s book.

Go and buy it – you’ll read it over and over again.  And if you are looking for good, solid information on creating your own self-sustaining homestead, Dan and Leigh’s experiences are a good place to begin.  If you just love reading how other people create a richer and more fulfilling life for themselves, then this book is for you.

And, go to 5 Acres & A Dream and congratulate Leigh on a job well-done.  She deserves it!!!

I joined this along with several other people.  If you want to help support creators of hand-made items rather than buy cheap, factory made stuff, then click on the link and see who all is there.  This would be a great way to give unique items for Christmas!
