You go girl!,
This review is from: Modern Pioneering: More Than 150 Recipes, Projects, and Skills for a Self-Sufficient Life (Paperback)
I saw an interview with author Georgia Pellegrini on Bloomberg TV and it was impressive how she stood up to their challenging questions with confidence and pride. As they pushed questions of whether or not she supported gun access (really), I realized how differently this way of life can be seen to others. It seems perfectly normal to me to connect with ones roots, live with less, and get back to the basics - and it's from that place that I receive this book as a great guide on self-sufficient living. Its exciting to see someone so composed, from the world of high-finance, to radically change their life and share it with the world. For more related reading, I highly recommend Ruth Stout's classic Gardening Without Work and The Vegetable Gardener's Guide to Permaculture.
