In "Home to Roost", Sheasley tells of the intertwined relationship between humans and chickens. It's the story of agriculture and human migration; of folk medicine and technology; of how we dreamed of the good life, threw it away, and want it back. He delves into where chickens came from, what their DNA tells us about our kinship, how we've treated our feathered fellow traveller, and the roads we're crossing, together. With wit and personal insight, "Home to Roost" examines how our lives can be changed for the better, with something as simple as a backyard coop.

Review:

"Sheasley combines firsthand experience and wide-ranging research in his treasury of chicken lore... A diverting excursion through the coop and beyond." - Kirkus Reviews" --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

A lifelong Pennsylvanian, Bob Sheasley grew up on a hundred-acre dairy farm in Old Order Amish county. He lives with his wife, son, and three daughters in their 1830s farmhouse, where he keeps a coop of fifty or so chickens.
