About the Author

Ruth Stout was a beloved advocate of organic gardening and simple living. Her books and magazine articles popularized her simple living to millions. Ruth was born in Kansas. Her mother was a Quaker with a rate knack for coping with her nine children. One of Ruth's brothers, Rex Stout, became the creator of the well-known Nero Wolfe mysteries, and Ruth herself began selling stories locally at an early age. As a teenager, Ruth accompanied prohibitionist Carrie Nation on a saloon-smashing excursion (saloons were illegal in Kansas City at the time). In 1923 Ruth accompanied fellow Quakers to Russia to assist in famine relief. Ruth moved to New York City, and before her marriage to Fred Rossiter she worked at a variety of jobs-nursemaid, telephone operator, bookkeeper, secretary, office manager, owner of a Greenwich Village tearoom. After her marriage, she and her husband moved to an old farm, Poverty Hollow, in West Redding, Connecticut. Ruth's career since moving to the country was that of cook, housekeeper, gardener, lecturer, and, of course, writer. Ruth wrote several books and innumerable newspaper and magazine columns. She died in 1980 at the age of 96. Michaela Lonning is a counselor who uses a warm relational style to help people get practical results with their most troublesome issues: relationships, work, self-image, even health.
