We know that many of our readers dream of living closer to nature.
The idea of going off-grid and then becoming self-sustaining is beguiling and appealing.
But what if you don’t choose that lifestyle, what if it chooses you?
Bootstrapper Is Mardi Jo Link
Mardi Jo Link found out in the summer of 2005. Her marriage had gone south.
She’d been “living the simple life” for 19 years and all it had got her was a bundle of debt and a divorce.
And with that, she faced losing her farmhouse and her children.
A Humad Story Of Unrivalled Optimism
Mardi Jo doesn’t break down and cry over this.
Instead, she battens down the hatches and decides to make things work.
This is her story. It’s told with wit and enthusiasm and over the course of a year, you watch her turn her life around.
Life Lessons Abound
This isn’t an instruction manual for how to get back in touch with nature and it’s not ordered like one – it’s an autobiographical tale, told well and enjoyably.
But there are plenty of lessons to be learned from its pages if you want to follow in Mardi Jo’s footsteps and they keep you entertained as well as informed.
We can strongly recommend that you check out Bootstrapper: From Broke To Badass on a Northern Michigan Farm. Highly recommended!
