The second chapter moved from warning of impending doom, to a call to arms of sorts, encouraging everyone to start farming/gardening. It even labels these new small farms and gardens “victory gardens" and "victory farms.” The chapter goes into the reasons, and effects of becoming a nation of farmers, and continues to call on you, the reader, to change, and make changes in your life. It was another, well informed, well written and inspiring chapter.
I find this book is like having a long and in depth conversation with a friend who is well informed. It’s part informational, part inspirational, and also, a huge call to action. You can’t read what’s in this book and not desire to do something. It makes you consider your whole world, and everything you do. It’s honest, and truthful, and passionate, without being hippie mumbo-jumbo. I’m going to have to purchase this book for myself. Read, and reread over and over again just to remind myself of the life I live in. This book articulates all the reasons I became a homesteader, including the ones I felt, but had yet to fully grasp.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you love it, or hate it?
