This book, Living on a Few Acres, is intended as a practical guide for those who make the journey back to the countryside and for some of your who are already there. It is mainly for those who intend not to gain their principal income from the land, but rather to have a job in town or live on a pension or some other source of income.Living on a Few Acres describes both the pitfalls and the satisfactions of country life. There are plenty of both. And there is nothing quite like country living.
