About the Book

“Five Acres and Independence” was good, but is now dated. Dennis Ogden’s new book “Your move to the Country” on survival in the country is aimed at the city or suburban family contemplating a new and better lifestyle in the country. He outlines the pros and cons of rural housing, rural amenities, rural schools and the rural lifestyle in general. He offers suggestions for income generating enterprises. Detailed are suggestions from little rabbits to giant draft horses, with fish and fowl somewhere in between. A must-have book for the beginner.
