See You in a Hundred Years: Four Seasons in Forgotten America
by Logan Ward
Disillusioned by city life in New York City, Logan Ward and his wife Heather pull their young son out of daycare and literally "head for the hills" of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, specifically the farming community of Swoope.
The Wards recreate the year of 1900 on their farm, adopting strict rules that limit them to only the tools that were available at the turn of the century. You will read about their struggles (irritable livestock and a plague of garden pests) in the midst of living without a phone, car, computer, etc. The reader will also see how this couple reclaim their lives from our fast-paced, materialistic society and in the process rebuild their fractured marriage and find what they didn't know they were looking for - community. An excellent read!
