1st ed.
The first of Effie Leland Wilder's raucous tales about Hattie McNair and the other residents of FairAcres Retirement Home

Hattie McNair may be retired, but she certainly hasn't retired from life. In journals and letters to a friend, Hattie tells the stories of her fellow residents at a retirement home and of the immeasurable gifts and burdens of aging.

Through the histories, hopes, and hijinks of Hattie's friends and foes, we come to know the Fair Acres folks and to share their triumphs and losses. When they join forces to help an illiterate young handyman, Hattie and company change their lives as well as those of young Arthur Priest and his family. By the time we finish Out to Pasture , we know the pride found in a life lived long and well, and the impact that we can have, no matter our age, on the people-and the world-around us.
