Rural Living

I was exploring a blogroll and came across "Nonfiction Readers Anonymous." I found a rather appropriate comment for those of us with genealogical interests in the blurb on Forty Acres and a Fool: How to Live in the Country and Still Keep Your Sanity. I'll give a snippet here, but read the entire post.

. . . Welsch advises his readers that “You can live in a new rural area for decades, even generations, but unless one of your ancestors is listed on the monument in front of city hall as one of the founders of the community, you will forever be an outsider” (p. 15). . . .
