TAKE TO THE HILLS by Marguerita Ly


Email this review


A city couple (Chicago) finds escape and enjoyment in the fun, the failures and the adventures of life in the Ozarks. No baedeker manner, informal, spiced with enthusiasm, highlighting a different way of life from the New York-to-New England pattern. How they came to buy their farm, how the author kept on working in the city while her husband concentrates on the farm, their horses, their sheep -- and the shearing -- their neighbors, their guests, the husband's local life as justice of the peace, forest fires, home remedies, food and recipes, repairs and remodelling, wash day in a drought, outdoor sanitation, local lore -- and the building up of a business in local products for city sale. As ""Marge of Sunrise Mountain Farm"", Mrs. Lyon has contributed some of this material to the Chicago Tribune.
