Author Joan Donaldsonabout this book: Have you every wondered what it is like to live off the grid and grow most of your own food while you also earn a living as an organic farmer? In Wedded to the Land, Joan Donaldson explores those questions along with sharing what she had learned during the spring ritual of boiling maple syrup, nurturing a peach orchard, and enduring a harsh drought. Throughout the collection of essays, the joy of simple living, the blessings of community, and the teamwork of her marriage shine. Her husband's team of oxen star on the cover.

• "This book really is packed full of simple stories that gesture toward the myriad poigancies of life and hint at the tiny, hidden aspects of the human condition. The stories vary in form and content, but they are unvarying in style and are wonderful to read." — Jamie on Goodreads

• "the author's passion soon flows from the pages and the reader is transplanted to rural life. You can picture the blueberries ripening on the bush, smell the earth as it fills your nostrils, and feel the sweat run down your back as you toil during the hardest day of work you can imagine. Each chapter brought lovely pieces to a puzzle." — Kristi on Goodreads
