At Home in Dogwood Mudhole, Volume One
THE TRUE STORY OF ONE FAMILY’S QUEST
When modern life fails to satisfy, Franklin Sanders and wife Susan go from nuclear family to multigenerational farm. Despite Susan’s admonition that they acquire nothing that eats, they gain dogs, chickens, horses, cows, pigs, ducks and sheep. Their children move back in and bring their spouses, filling Dogwood Mudhole with grandchildren. It’s no Green Acres, but through sheer persistence and good humor, they learn to farm. At Home in Dogwood Mudhole, Volume One: Nothing That Eats chronicles one family’s attempt to live an authentic life.

VOLUME TWO: BEST THING WE EVER DID
Breaking new farming barriers, Franklin and Susan go from making home-cured bacon, through Franklin successfully whispering bees into a hive, to Franklin finding himself in a “discussion meeting” about the National Animal Identification System. Grandchildren arrive almost as fast as lambs and piglets, Franklin finally gets his sheep dog, and the worst thing that ever happened happens. Through it all, Franklin keeps right on farming. The rewards are too great—a living legacy of farm know-how, land, and animals, right down to fruit trees for his great-great-grandchildren to know him by.
