Rural Free, first published in 1961, beautifully conveys the joys of family life on an Indiana farm. Marked by the slow pace and rich variety of seasonal change, Rachel Peden's narrative offers an authentic month-by-month chronicle of her family's daily adventures. Today, as the slow-food movement gathers support and more urban dwellers return to the land to plant roots again in honest soil, Peden's stories of country life and her lessons on sustainability, frugality, and wastefulness gain a special resonance.

Rural Free will be a source of inspiration for all who rejoice in rural virtues and the spiritual freedom of country life.

    " If you've ever wanted to live on a farm, this collection of newspaper columns written by a 1950s farm wife will make you go on zillow.com to see how much land is per acre. Comforting, charming, beautifully written. Perfect for a hammock on a Sunday afternoon. "
