It was a cold late autumn day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse—as was the insulation.
An unlikely adventurer, the suburban born-and-bred author tackles one daunting challenge after another on her new acre farm, from hatching chickens and milking a cow to herding sheep and making her own cheese. Based on her long-running, wildly popular blog, Chickens in the Road , Suzanne McMinn brings country life to vivid color with all the candor, comedy, and danger of a rollicking good adventure. To McMinn, life is a bold adventure, but only if you live it. And, boy, does she ever! This book is dedicated with love and gratitude to each and every one of my readers at Chickens in the Road.
