From the Publisher:

Praise for previous editions:

"This book tells you everything." --The New York Times

"We've never seen such a comprehensive book on the subject...it may just as well have been called the 'bible' on finding and buying your place in the country." --Backwoods Home magazine

Although the “back to the land” movement has been going on for years, recent technological advances have made rural living a viable option for people who never before believed that they could realize the dream of leaving behind urban stress. And even those committed to city living are contributing to the boom in the market for second homes, often rural homes, farms, or ranches.

The most comprehensive information source available, this consummate guide to country real estate offers detailed, step-by-step action plans and a complete country property evaluation checklist. The authors leave no stone unturned, pointing to the potential risks and rewards of purchasing rural properties. They discuss in detail how to:

* Start the search, look for land, and find trustworthy rural real estate experts * Evaluate water, climate, topography, soil, and local amenities * Deal with complex laws relating to such rural issues as water, minerals, easements, and zoning * Negotiate the best price and finance the purchase
