             Somewhere in an Oregon Valley:

My family, Laura and our daughters, Juniper and Amanda, and I worked on a ranch in the Blue Mountains of northeastern Oregon, with no electricity and no plumbing, no garbage pickup, no television, no radio, no modern conveniences. We pursued education where we lived, and we saw and interacted with abundant wildlife in the area. Choosing deeper meaning than merely material fulfillment worked well for us as is evident to readers of Somewhere in an Oregon Valley.

I cut hay from the mountain meadows and cut firewood from dead lodgepole pine. We worked and played with a draft horse one fall. We fed cattle hay when winter started.

I stopped a lightning-caused fire one year, then spent most of a rainy, dark night on a ridge in the forest.

We had classes and worked projects at the kitchen table and had many other adventures I write about in this book.
