One Acre at a Time

by Timothy Brown

About The Book

One Acre At A Time is about a man and woman’s struggle to carve out a farm in the wilds of Clay County, WV in the 1870s. Tom and Callie Brown share their faith and good fortune with those around them as they take twelve hundred and eight acres of virgin timber in the head of Little Sycamore Creek and turn it into a working, self-sufficient farm, where they raise most of their food, along with goats, pigs, chickens, cows, horses, and one “yaller dog”, all in the space of three years. They build fences, houses, and barns from the timber growing on their property and, as they travel around Clay County, people familiar with the area will enjoy recognizing landmarks that are still there to this day.
