Jeffrey Miller and his new book, "Our Bend in the River"

In 2018, Jeffrey Miller and his family bought a 5-acre homestead along a river, naming it Cottonwood Bend Farm. They aimed to create a sustainable home, and "Our Bend in the River" documents their journey. The book weaves together Miller's childhood memories on a small farm with his family's current experiences, celebrating rural living and a natural lifestyle. Essays and stories explore various homesteading topics, from gardening and tree planting to sustainable living.
