The author details a number of techniques of finding sellers without the need to use a broker. He also explains why so many owners are reluctant to break up a large parcel of land and he details a number of ways around that problem. His solutions are both simple and practical. They ranged from attending rural auctions to get the word out to folks that he was looking for land, and even his deciding to forego his own barber in town and get his haircuts at the barbers out in the areas where he was looking for land.
Along the way, Turner manages to find an old Farmall H and buy it for $300, even before he has found his land. We later hear that he has even joined a tractor restoration club. We are also treated to the detailed description of how he was able to move an old summer kitchen to his property to serve as little cabin.
When I read this book, I was in the midst of looking for my first piece of inexpensive rural property myself, as well as totally enamored of antique tractors, I found this book most enjoyable. "The CyberRanch" is now up to 208 acres in 3 parcels and I have more tractors than I can count. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking to buy rural land, or who simply appreciates good writing.
