I am happy to announce the release of my very first book. It will be available very soon. Due to some last minute corrections to the final proof, the book will not be for sale on line, until the printing is completed in mid-November.
IF YOU LIVED IN SAM'S NECK describes in poetic style, a family's commitment to an adventure in living close to nature during the early seventies on a forty-acre homestead in northern California. It is a read aloud, easy picture book with photographs to share the gifted rewards of a back to nature lifestyle.
IF YOU LIVED IN SAM'S NECK serves as a model beacon of light for families who might be following a similar dream. It honors the memories of what was accomplished and experienced, the challenges that were overcome and how we grew to love our chosen way of life. It still remains a
a timely guide for today's generation.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In the early 1970s, Ms. Tepedino left a teaching career in Miami, Florida with her two teenage sons, to homestead and go back to the land.
After short experiments in Maine and Santa Cruz, they purchased forty acres north of Mt. Shasta. Ms. Tepedino first wrote this reflection in 1974. It has always been her dream to one day make it available for children, teachers and families.
Ms. Tepedino, now in her late seventies, continues to enjoy teaching, performing, photography, gardening and writing poetry. She will always be nourished by what happened in Sam's Neck. She currently lives in northern California.
