The news today is not good. We are experiencing a financial crisis that rivals the Great Depression, wild swings in energy prices signaling the end of cheap oil, food shortages and rising prices, water shortages all over the globe, and noticeable effects of climate change. It’s an easy time to be discouraged, but it’s also an excellent time to take stock of your life and make some changes.

Government resources are strained and we will not be able to rely on them as we have in the past. It’s time to reclaim your independence, weather the storm, and bring new meaning to your life. The technological world we find ourselves in distances us from the experiences that used to be part of the rhythm of daily life. Growing your own food, heating your home without being reliant on someone else, and living within your means are activities that will bring joy to your life and help you deal with the multiple challenges that we face today. This book is a road map to making your home more independent, getting your bank account back on track, and discovering that digging potatoes for dinner or showering in water heated by the sun can provide the greatest of satisfactions. It’s time to pay down that debt, grow your own food, and start integrating renewable energy and energy efficiency into your home to reduce your carbon footprint, free yourself from the stress of financial obligations, and return your spirit to its rightful place in harmony with the simple things that make life a fantastic journey.

Author Cam Mather lives four miles from the nearest electricity lines, generating his power from the sun and wind and growing most of his own food. He has produced instructional DVDs on growing vegetables and installing wind turbines and has motivated thousands of his workshop attendees to take joy in becoming more independent.
