About this item

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.

About the Author

Rhonda Hetzel

Although I've been a writer most of my life, I became an author because I was a blogger first. I started blogging when I changed my life completely and knew I had to share what I was learning with others. Surely I couldn't be the only one who wanted a better life by living more simply. After a few years I'd built a very successful blog with an international audience and then Penguin came knocking at my door.

My first book, Down to Earth, is still selling well. My second book, The Simple Life, sold out on the first day and was reprinted the day after publication. Many people want to live simply but don't know how to start, or need the motivation to continue. I think my books offer that at the very least; I hope you find they give you much more.
