Martha Stewart, Dr. Phil, and Oral Roberts have been telling us for years how to live. Somehow this author, living in big sky country addresses the real lessons in this book in a way that many of us want at this time. Even if there seems to be no need for the calf pulling skills or ability to raise and store enough vegetables to feed our families through a long Montana winter, her poems and recipes reveal a way to live every day. This gifted author inspires us with her humerous tales coping with nature and nurture. Maybe women want to be from the country and men are searching for a woman who knows how to shovel manure.

This is THE best book I've ever read about life on a farm. Written so it's very easy to understand, the book gives a realistic view of what farm life is really like without all the romantic fluff other books tend to make living on a farm. The author gives a very good insight about everything--snooty neighbors and all. Read this book BEFORE you decide to move "to the country". Farm life is definitely NOT for me and with the help of this book, I now understand the difference between living in the country and living on a farm.

Was a gift for a new farm wife. Lots of fun

A wonderful collection of stories about life out west, living in the country. If you grew up living on a farm or want to this is a must read. It describes a way of life that many don't get to experience anymore. I bought this book for myself, liked it so well that I have given them as presents. Humorous and heartfelt.

I enjoyed the book. I can see where someone who doesn't have a clue about farm and ranch life might not get it but then again I don't care for big cities.

Awesome read and I am not a fan or reading normally. I couldn't put this one down.

This IS a great book, but I was disappointed to discover that it is the previously released "Ranch Woman's Manual" with a few additions and a name change. I paid twice for the same book.
Eye opening. Well written and informative but yet hilarious.
