In 2010, Cody and his Wranglerstar family decided to turn their backs on a comfortable city life and become modern-day homesteaders. Their adventure starts in the rugged mountains of the Pacific Northwest. They are now popular pioneers in a growing movement of people seeking independence from debt, freedom to raise their family with values and faith, and the peace of a simpler, more meaningful approach to life.
Food: We can't live without it, yet its costs are rising and consuming more of the family budget. In addition, health concerns about the use of pesticides, genetically modified foods, and potential soil mineral depletion in the food supply inspire more people to want to grow their own vegetables. Many of them live in cities with only small yard spaces.
This book presents new methods devised and tested by author Margaret Park to maximize food production from a small yard. By tightly spacing plants in deep, fertile soil, training plants vertically, and harvesting year-round -- with the help of the inexpensive, portable greenhouse one can build from this book -- a great proportion of a family's vegetable needs can be grown at home -- even in the space it takes to park a car.
Park has devised and tested a great growing system. Even if people have more space, it doesn't make sense to use more space. Gardeners won't necessarily produce more vegetables, but more space does mean more area to cultivate, weed and water, and less space for other backyard uses. Soil fertility is more important than additional space. The system of composting introduced in the book requires an Effective Microorganisms (EM) medium (mostly wheat bran inoculated with beneficial microorganisms) and two buckets, one for collecting kitchen waste and one for further fermentation. The microorganisms not only feed the plants, they also clean up the soil.

In Mustang Man, Louis L’Amour takes Nolan Sackett on a dangerous journey into family betrayal, greed, and murder.
When Nolan Sackett met Penelope Hume in a cantina at Borregos Plaza, the girl immediately captured his attention. That she was heir to a lost cache of gold didn’t make her any less desirable. But Penelope isn’t the only one after her grandfather’s treasure; Sylvie, Ralph, and Andrew Karnes, distant relatives with no legal claim to the gold, are obsessed with claiming the Hume fortune for themselves. Their all-consuming sense of entitlement recklessly drives them to ambush and murder. Even if Sackett and Penelope are fortunate enough to escape this deadly trio and find the canyon where the gold is hidden, Indian legend has it that nothing will live there—no birds or insects. They say it is filled with the bones of men.
