With humor and poise, Jenna Woginrich describes her adventurous self-education in homesteading. Poignant offbeat observations on learning to farm by trial and error punctuate the story of her quest to find a permanent home for herself and her livestock: chickens, geese, sheep, ducks, rabbits, a goat, and a turkey. Alone and on a shoestring budget, Woginrich takes on cranky neighbors and small-town politics without ever losing her trademark humility or comedic style.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of mental health in rural America, with the goal of fostering urgently needed research and honest conversations about providing accessible, culturally competent mental health care to rural populations. Grounding the work is an explanation of the history and structure of rural mental health care, the culture of rural living among diverse groups, and the crucial "A’s" and "S": accountability, accessibility, acceptability, affordability, and stigma. The book then examines poverty, disaster mental health, ethics in rural mental health, and school counseling. It ends with practical information and treatments for two of the most common problems, suicide and substance abuse, and a brief exploration of collaborative possibilities in rural mental health care.

This volume provides an in-depth understanding of the topic of vegetarianism by presenting multiple sides to several concepts. After an overview of vegetarianism, readers will evaluate several debates, including whether humans are natural vegetarians, whether a plant-based diet is healthier, whether there is a moral justification for eating animals, and whether vegetarianism is bad for the environment. An essay by Brittany Estes-Garcia helps make the topic personal, by providing a description of the experience of being a vegan and vegetarian in high school.
