Author Beth Hoad of East Palmyra, NY has published a new book, entitled COUNTRIFIED: Life and other things from a rural perspective.

As Palmyra Historian and newspaper reporter, Beth Hoad has written about people, places, things and events for several years. When urged by a friend to “...write a book about living in the country...” she turned to her journals containing her own experiences as the basis for a series of essays, photos and other works on farming and country life as lived in Wayne County, New York.

Countrified is a light-hearted relaxing look at a fast-disappearing way of life through the author’s personal experiences and from a perspective perhaps different from many yet similar to some.

Beth was raised on a small farm and married into a dairy farm family where she helped with daily chores and field work for three decades while raising two children and later spent several years as an owner-operator/over-the- road truck driver. She continues to help on the family farm, keeps a bed and breakfast in her historic home and is presently the town historian and feature writer for Times of Wayne County.

She is the author of a local history, An East Palmyra Story, in 1999, and received the Augustus L. and Jennie D. Hoffman Foundation T. Spencer Knight Historical Award for that work. She also co-authored East Palmyra Remembered in 2004 and has contributed short works to several Wayne Writers Guild publications.

Countrified is currently available at Village Book Market LLC in Palmyra, NY or from the author at (315) 597-9658 or hoadatmnlf@aol.com. Books, Etc. in Macedon, NY will soon have it on the shelf.

  1. Frances Said,

    I would love to get in contact with Beth Hoad because I'm writing a book about my days living in East Palmyra from 1958 - 1965. I doing some research now but I'm residing in the Netherlands so it's not that easy to just come and visit. I would also like to order her book. Kind regards, Frances Vandyke
