Description

The book that started it all.

At the beginning of the saga, before the homesteading and the wild food, there was poetry.

Ken Heitz, Linda’s husband during the homestead years, was in a blue period of his life and began a process of spontaneously writing for himself. He was working out what was important in life: The big questions.

At some point he shared his writings with Linda and the rest was history. Ken and Linda were married and began a great adventure together.

They started their wild experience in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York in the early 1970s with the ideas & ideals at the core of this new book fixed firmly in their minds.

You may be wondering- “But if it’s new, how could it be a part of their history??” True, the poems were written many years ago, and Ken & Linda always wanted to publish them as a book. They even published excerpts of it in the form of 2 smaller works during the homestead years. But only now has the book they dreamed of come into being.

In the newsletters and on this site you have been treated to samples of Ken’s work. We now offer this 112-page perfect-bound book, Why Not LOVE?¬†illustrated by Linda.

 

Testimonials

This book of poetry is about one man’s truth about life. It shows how he feels about love, nature, and himself. The poem “Sound” makes the reader want to sit quitely and pay attention to nature all around him. I like this book for the ways it speaks of respecting earth and other people. Why Not Love makes me realize that each day should be lived to the fullest, and not take nature for granted. My favorite poem is “The Old,” as it talks about the cycle of life and helping each other during each stage of life. This book is for people of all ages, as it deals with topics for EVERYONE.
