Sky Ranch: Living on a Remote Ranch in Idaho
Posted by Literary Titan
Sky Ranch is a riveting memoir about a young suburban woman who trades in her city life for an Idaho ranch. Living in rural America is not easy, as Bobbi quickly learns. While the challenges are numerous Bobbi’s determination often helps her overcome them. This compelling memoir delivers one of the best contrasts between rural life and city life. Bobbi shares her true story and how she adapted to a new life during the 80’s, a time without modern technology, when all you had to rely on was yourself, family and friends.
I have lived most of my life in the city, visiting farms only in passing, so I can’t even imagine what it’s like to live on a farm. Bobbi Phelps paints a vivid picture of life on an industrial farm. This is a memoir, but it feels like a movie made for the Hallmark channel. It is a heartfelt story and I found Bobbi to be endearing. She shares many of the things she learns along the way and I appreciated the candor with which she tells her unique story.
I have not spent time on a farm, so all of the different obstacles she had to contend with were incredible to me. For instance Bobbi faces Rocky Mountain blizzards where there’s moments of ‘white-outs’, ugh… “Alexa what is a ‘white-out’?” There were so many new things that I learned about rural life from this book. What fascinated me the most was that Bobbi was also learning about these things while having to live through them.
This is an emotional, but ultimately uplifting story, about a suburban woman adapting to life on a cattle farm. It is an intriguing story filled with humor, drama, and even moments of terror. If you enjoy stimulating memoirs about a life quite different from your own then I heartily recommend Sky Ranch.
