Standing into the Storm: A journey from industry into grassfed bison ranching and a call to reclaim our agrarian heritage by Kathy Margaret Lindner with Kenneth Robert Lindner, Jr.

First-time author—and Eatwild producer—Kathy Lindner describes the path she and fiance' Ken began in 1993, as they sought a life beyond layoffs, mergers and down-sizing. A life beyond corporate America. All they originally wanted was an active retirement raising bison for meat which 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. Reading this book could change yours.

Standing into the Storm began as a memoir about what Kathy and Ken learned along their journey to a more fulfilling lifestyle. But it became more. The book includes a Call to Action for individuals and for the foodservice and bison industries. It also includes a call for all of us to advocate on behalf of bison—an animal that survived near decimation over a century ago and is now being threatened again.

If you ever thought about leaving your current job and going in a whole new direction, if you care about how animals are raised for meat, or if you want to learn more about present-day threats to bison, this book is for you.

©2011. Softcover. 316 pages.

Standing into the Storm weaves the reader through the tapestry of doubt, fear, triumph, and victory as two people with limited funds do the impossible- buy land and a herd of bison. Not only will you be inspired by their persistence and determination, but it will also challenge you to change the way you view your food supply. It is a story that brings the past into the present while showing us a better way for the future. Read the full review...
