Authors on Animals™

Authors talk with Tracie about their books, which focus on creatures who share the planet with us. Some of the books are newly released, others are old favorites; some books are fiction and works of the imagination, others are non-fiction and the culmination of years of research spent studying the species of choice, whether animals of the land, sea or sky.

Manhattanites Became Weekend Farmers

Authors On Animals (07-20-2015) #119: In The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir, Josh Kilmer-Purcell writes about becoming weekend farmers with his partner, Dr. Brent Ridge (formerly an executive with Martha Stewart Omni Media) after purchasing and fixing up a 200 year old mansion on 60 acres near Sharon Springs, N.Y., wittily recounting their daily experiences meeting neighbors, finding a caretaker, herding goats (and making soap from their milk), canning tomatoes, and digging a garden.
