In the process, she's
realistic but sympathetic about the trials that face folks new to animal
husbandry in a farm setting. Readers follow along as she and her
husband jump through the emotional hurdle of killing beloved chickens,
figure out how to use water guns to train goats, and build innovative
strawbale shelters for pigs. Learning from her mistakes means you won't
be fated to repeat them, but at the same time the author's engaging
photos and stories will make you yearn to create critter tales too.
Before you know it, you may be juggling livestock guardian dogs,
chemical-free honeybees, and guineas of your very own.
