Up Tunket Road was recently reviewed in the Rutland Herald:
It’s a tale that captures the unpredictable nature of life as a Vermont homesteader, but it is also part of a serious narrative about a family’s quest for a self-sufficient lifestyle and a reflection on what homesteading means in an age that is coming to grips with climate change and increasing human demands on the land.
About the book: Up Tunket Road is the inspiring true story of a young couple who embraced the joys of simple living while also acknowledging its frustrations and complexities. Ackerman-Leist writes with humor about the inevitable foibles of setting up life off the grid—from hauling frozen laundry uphill to getting locked in the henhouse by their ox. But he also weaves an instructive narrative that contemplates the future of simple living. His is not a how-to guide, but something much richer and more important—a tale of discovery that will resonate with readers who yearn for a better, more meaningful life, whether they live in the city, country, or somewhere in between.
