The Modern-Day Pioneer
Simple Living in the 21st Century
When was the last time you let the aroma of freshly baked bread fill your kitchen or felt the warmth of a heavy quilt on a cold winter night? In today's day and age, it’s easy to get swept up in the whirlwind of convenience and forget what it's like to truly appreciate the simple things in life. The Modern-Day Pioneer celebrates these forgotten joys by showing you how to incorporate basic skills and living into your everyday life. Whether you're interested in growing your own fruits and vegetables, raising chickens for meat or eggs, crafting delicious meals from scratch, or creating and mending your own clothes and quilts, this book makes it easy to live a healthier and more sustainable life in the twenty-first century.
Filled with step-by-step instructions and homegrown inspiration, you'll wonder how you ever lived without the sweet taste of locally harvested honey or the refreshing scent of homemade lavender soap.
