Self-sufficiency is the ultimate girl power
 
Georgia Pellegrini, outdoor adventurer and chef, helps you roll up your sleeves and tap into your pioneer spirit. Grow a small-space garden and preserve a little deliciousness for the cold months; assemble the makings of a self-sufficient pantry; learn to navigate without a compass for your next camping trip; or even forage for plants that give you energy.
Whether you’re a full-time homesteader, a weekend farmer’s market devoté, or anyone looking to do more by hand, this overflowing resource will help you hone new skills in the kitchen, garden, and great outdoors. It includes:
·         More than 100 recipes for garden-to-table dishes, preserves, and cured foods
·         Small-space gardening advice on building a raised bed, choosing what to grow, and saving seeds
·         DIY projects, such as Mason jar lanterns and homemade notecards
·         Superwoman skills like assembling a 48- hour survival toolkit in an Altoids tin
 
Packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations, Modern Pioneering proves that becoming more self-sufficient not only means being empowered, but also having a lot more fun.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If self-sufficiency was once edged out of the room by conspicuous consumption, it's made an amazing comeback. Living off the land has become the bugle call of millions of modern-day pioneers who are learning skills their parents often carelessly left behind. Georgia Pellegrini's Modern Pioneering mixes rewarding DIY projects and small-space gardening advice with the lure of more than 100 recipes for tasty garden-to-table dishes, preserves, and cured foods—and her artfully planned 48-hour survival toolkit will make the entire family feel a lot safer! A trade paperback and NOOK Book original.

    You go girl!
    I saw an interview with author Georgia Pellegrini on Bloomberg TV and it was impressive how she seriously 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.
