If you’ve been reading my website for more than, say, two minutes, you probably know by now that the stories I’ve shared with you here about my first years farming in West Virginia–raising chickens, milking a stubborn cow, and learning to make cheese and fire and goat cookies have become the inspiration for a book! Chickens in the Road: An Adventure in Ordinary Splendor is the wild and juicy memoir of my life at Stringtown Rising Farm. (Cows, cookies, high water, and love!) What more could you ask for? Well, you could ask for one more thing–a copy!
You can pre-order the book now and have it in your hands on October 8th.

The book bares all for the seasoned CITR reader and the brand new alike, and let me tell you, some parts were hard for me to write as I went behind the scenes to tell you the whole story. I’ve always kept a curtain closed on my blog to my private life. This book is the whole story, the real story, how and why things happened, filling in the gaps between the stories I always shared here. In the book, you’ll find it all–the secrets, the disasters, the fears, and the motivations that inspired me to make everything sound so funny, just so I could survive it.
This book is dedicated with love and gratitude to each and every one of you who have been here with me at Chickens in the Road. You carried me through this journey on your wings of unflagging support and encouragement, and I needed you more than you ever realized. This book is for you, with the whole truth you deserve. Thank you, always, just for being here.
