Kate Sanborn (1839-1917) author, teacher and lecturer. "A break in health sent her to the country and she settled in Metcalf, Mass., for the remainder of her life. The records of her experiences Adopting an Abandoned Farm (1891) and Abandoning an Adopted Farm (1894) are delightfully humorous and may be counted as among the early contributions to `back to the land' writings. Lightly as she wrote them, the experiences were not all easy or remunerative, and the wise may read many a warning and much sage advice under the flow of wit."--Dict. Amer. Biography, XVI:327.
