 Whether we have grown up in the city and made a tree change or were born in a country town and stuck with it through thick and thin, those of us who live in rural and regional New South Wales feel strongly about the country. Many people have an idealised vision of living in the country  – bucolic, life at a relaxed pace. Of course, real life is complicated, no matter where you live and there are plenty of books, songs, newspapers, blogs and DVDs that show the many aspects of life west of the Great Dividing Range.
