In the '60s it was called the "back to the land" movement, and in Helen and Scott Nearing's day, it was "living the good life." Whatever the term, North Americans have always yearned for a simpler way. But how do you accomplish that today?

Blending inspiration with practical how-to's, Rural Renaissance, a Mother Earth News Book for Wiser Living, captures the American dream of country living for contemporary times. Journey with the authors and experience their lessons, laughter and love for the land as they trade the urban concrete maze for a five-acre organic farm and bed and breakfast in southwestern Wisconsin. Rural living today is a lot more than farming. It's about a creative, nature-based and more self-sufficient lifestyle that combines a love of squash, solar energy, skinny dipping and serendipity.

Among the many topics explored in Rural Renaissance include:

  • "right livelihood" and the good life
  • organic gardening and permaculture
  • renewable energy and energy conservation
  • wholesome organic food, safe water and a natural home
  • simplicity, frugality and freedom
  • green design and recycled materials
  • community, friends and raising a family
  • independence and interdependence
  • wildlife conservation and land stewardship


An authentic tale of a couple whose pioneering spirit and connection to the land reaches out to both the local and global community to make their dream come true, Rural Renaissance will appeal to a wide range of Cultural Creatives, free agents, conservation entrepreneurs and both arm-chair and real-life homesteaders regardless of where they live.

About the Contributors: Lisa Kivirist is an innkeeper, organic farmer and copartner in a marketing consulting company.

In this 63-page book, the healing energies of aromatic herbs and flowers are combined into 17 dream blends specially designed to reduce stress and increase mental clarity and awareness.

A fragrance can instantly take you back in time in your mind. The brief smell of cologne or perfume, not experienced in years, can, in an instant, remind you of a first date in high school. The fragrance of roses may remind you of your great aunt, or the smell of fresh bread baking can transport you to the pleasant holidays of your childhood.

Dream Pillows are a form of aromatherapy, a means of making dreams more interesting, more soothing or colorful. In his newest book, Herbal Dream Pillows, Jim Long shares nearly two dozen of his dream pillow formulas.

You'll find dream blends to keep away nightmares, blends to comfort you when you travel, some that evoke romantic dreams, and still others that inspire creative dreaming.
