A Cautionary Tale of Trading The Urban Rat Race for Country Living

      Hard-working urban professionals Kristy Athens and husband Mike were thrilled in 2003 to buy seven acres outside Stevenson in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. They were surprised to learn just how challenging rural life could be. Kristy took the trials and tribulations of rural life and compiled them into a new how-not-to book-- Get Your Pitchfork On! The Real Dirt on Country Living.
