Overview

First-time author Kathy Lindner describes the path she and fiance Ken began in 1993, seeking a life beyond layoffs, mergers and down-sizing a life outside of corporate America. All they originally wanted was an active retirement raising bison for meat they could sell to support a home for themselves and their animals. Instead, they found themselves in the middle of a food movement that was gaining momentum. It would change their lives forever. You'll travel with them over an 18-year journey of determination to survive outside the system. Middle-aged beginners with no agricultural background, they stubbornly held fast to their goal despite limited capital, denied loan applications, commercial regulations and obstacles few can imagine, let alone overcome. Standing into the Storm began as a memoir about what Kathy and Ken learned along their journey to a more fulfilling lifestyle, and contains delightful surprises such as an original music composition url by Ken on the last page of Chapter 6. But it became more than a memoir. The book includes a Call to Action for individuals, foodservice and the bison industry, as well as a call for all of us to advocate on behalf of bison that may once again be in danger. Kathy and Ken believe that, regardless of our abilities and resources, we each can make a positive difference to food production - for ourselves, for the animals and for the earth. Their story shows that courage, vulnerability, self-discovery and strength are available to us at any age, as is the will to prevail. "We've come a long way and there's still much more to do," Kathy says. "But if we can do it, so can others who want something more. The smallest beginning is all that is required."

Editorial Reviews

Leah Bergman
When I think of bison, I envision open plains with herds of majestic creatures freely roaming the meadows. I hear horses galloping, and see the sun-kissed skin of their riders as they lift their arrows. Arrows which whiz toward their mark leaving in its wake a sacrifice that will feed an entire village—wasting nothing. All of these images come to mind, so I was surprised the first time I came across Ken Lindner at our local farmer’s market. He encouraged me to try the meat, and

Meet the Author

Kathy lives with her husband Ken in their Valencia, CA condo north of Los Angeles. Now in their early 60s, their bi-weekly 1200 mile commute to Heritage Ranch in northeastern California ranch – a trip they have undertaken every 11 days - is almost done. In 2011, they began building a house and in 2012 will finally join their bison at Heritage Ranch, eventually adding heritage species such as chickens, turkeys and pigs. Lindner Bison’s presence will continue at the farmers' markets in southern California while they make needed improvements at the ranch and find a way to make these additional meats available to customers. Kathy Margaret Lindner is proud to share the name and pioneering spirit of her great-grandmother Margaret Carlston, who became known as the Cattle Queen of Montana.®
