Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Into The Forest by Jean Hegland 1998

My review for the book site.


One of the best books I've ever read and my top pick for 2008.

Into The Forest is a story that's not so far fetched, not so far from where we are this very minute. A story less about "what if" and more about "when". It's a book that's full and rich with truth, fantasy and hope when two young sisters who must find a way to survive, live and grow in a world they don't understand and know nothing about. It's about love and loss, letting go and holding tight, death and renewal. It's about canning lids and matches, sisters and friends, survival and truly learning to live.

A permanent addition to my personal library.
