An excerpt from “High Up in the Rolling Hills”:

“Craving fresh air, peace and quiet, a simpler life, a slower pace and more space, we headed up into these mysterious hills. We feathered our new nest, a hillside homestead and a sizeable (55 acres) chunk of land, and wondered what tomorrow might bring. The rural community we came to was first cautious, then accommodating, then outright welcoming to us.”
