Book

I'm reading This Life is in Your Hands by Melissa Coleman. Daughter of Eliot Coleman. My favorite part so far - the Nearings sold 60 acres of their land to to Eliot for $2,000. As I am a back-to-the-lander/homesteader wannabe, this is a really fascinating read. The snippets of life with the Nearings as neighbors is an added bonus.

I'll have to read it too. I love Eliot Coleman's books. $2,000? Wow...sounds great to me :-)

Hi Barb,

Yes, we are big fans of Eliot. It's a great book, but it does feel a lot personal - sometimes even - a little too much so.

I didn't realize Eliot Coleman had children. I thought that was how he was able to get so much done, lol...

I just finished reading this also....a good book, but a sad experience.
