The homesteading dream, is it still alive? 5 Acres & A Dream The Sequel follows Leigh Tate’s 5 Acres & A Dream The Book, taking a hard look at what happened to their dream. Has it changed?

Oh no I thought - I've just bought the original! Then I saw the ebook download. How awesome is that! And I can read it on my kindle as I'm an insomniac who doesn't want to wake up the breadwinner.
