'I was pulled into simple living before I knew what it was.

It crept up on me using the smallest of steps and didn't reveal its true beauty and real power until I was totally hooked. I was searching for a way to live well while spending very little money.

What I found was a way of life that also gave me independence, opportunity and freedom.'

Rhonda Hetzel gently encourages readers to find the pleasure and meaning in a simpler life, sharing all the practical information she has gathered on her own journey.

Whether you want to learn how to grow tomatoes, bake bread, make your own soap and preserve fruit, or just be inspired to slow down and live more sustainably, Down to Earth will be your guide.

  • Life Changing

    by on

    I was not sure what I was expecting when I first started to read this book. Quaint, yes, but life changing, this I had not expected. This book is an inspiration in simple, mindful, practical, manageable, money saving, realistic living with small impact on the earth. I have reread this book numerous times. It has inspired me to change my life, less materialistic, more meaningful, less rushed, more meaningful. I cannot recommend this book enough. Have a read, you too will find inspiration in this friendly, well written and positive book

  • Really Useful Book

    by on

    I recently bought this book as I am very much into being self sufficient and living simply. This book has some really useful information, no matter your stage in life. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in becoming a self sufficient home maker. A really great read!

  • A really handy reference for all things homemaking

    by on

    I was given this book as a gift and it has been a valuable resource (recipes for food, cleaning products), homemaking tips, and general encouragement that it is, in fact, very much ok to be a homemaker and do it well. I really recommend this book for anyone who needs inspiration and guidance in their homemaking.
