For some this pioneer spirit shows itself in someone’s determination to climb to the top of the corporate ladder. But for others, this pioneer spirit takes them back to their roots…literally; giving them the desire to be self-sufficient to the greatest extent possible.
If you are reading this book you are most likely someone wanting to be more self-sufficient. Good for you! With the cost of food going higher and higher every week (literally) and the nearly-constant revelations of the negative effects of chemicals, processed foods and other things we ingest, it’s a shame more people aren’t willing to do more to get back to the basics of providing for themselves.
