Keep Your Fingers in the Dirt: Lessons in Simple Living from the Oklahoma Hills Keep Your Fingers in the Dirt is the story of the people who taught two city-raised newlyweds the lessons they needed to know to live well in the country. Some lessons were practical, including felling trees for firewood or butchering a chicken for supper. Some were philosophical, involving respect for a laborer's dignity or the proper attitude to take towards strangers in need. All were important lessons in simple living. Those people are all gone now. But their lessons live on. Dorothy Bowen lives with her husband Glenn in Northeastern Oklahoma. She and Glenn still raise a large garden, raise chickens for the freezer and cut firewood to heat their home. They attend a nondenominational Sabbatarian Charismatic fellowship in Natural Dam Arkansas. Readers may write to her in care of the fellowship at: Good News Fellowship PO Box 1 Natural Dam, AR 72948
