What to Expect from Hostile Valley Thoughts
Not just homesteading how-tos anymore.
For years, I have focused on expository writing about homesteading, farming, and rural life. How to take care of goats, what breed of goose is right for you, how to over winter swing — those are just some of my titles. This space is for a different kind of writing.
I have been ‘homesteading’ for seven years. Before me, my parents were part of a back-to-the-land movement. As a child all of my friends’ parents were more or less crunchy. And most of my friends today are homesteading, farming, or growing their own food. I’ve made a lot of observations about what makes a successful, happy homestead and what leads to failure. And I’ve formed an awful lot of opinions about why we homestead and what that word really means.
So this space is for my personal essays and editorials on the homesteading lifestyle, its pitfalls and failures and its most magical and satisfying moments.
