Tampa, FL, July 12, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Kenny Coogan launches his new book, "99½ Homesteading Poems: A Backyard Guide to Raising Creatures, Growing Opportunity, and Cultivating Community."
A celebration of the homesteading lifestyle, "99½ Homesteading Poems: A Backyard Guide to Raising Creatures, Growing Opportunity, and Cultivating Community" speaks the universal truths home gardeners and animal caregivers share. Homesteading is a growing movement, especially for millennials who want to go “back to the basics” through backyard poultry, urban gardens, preservation, and home cooking.
"99½ Homesteading Poems" offers inspiration and advice through themed poems covering gardening, DIY projects, building community, raising livestock and over 20 farm- to- fork recipes. Poems are functional yet funny. “If you’re sick of the rat race and sick of the grime and want to live intentionally and be on your own time, this book will teach you how to take ownership of your life,” Coogan says.
The foreword is by Amy K. Fewell, Founder of Homesteaders of America, author of The Homesteader’s Herbal Companion and The Homesteader’s Natural Chicken Keeping Handbook. According to Fewell, “Through poetic imagery and whimsical humor, I was taken back to simpler days flipping through each and every page of 99½ Homesteading Poems. Homesteading in real life is beautiful, but Kenny’s words made homesteading jump off the page of a book. Kenny has done such an incredible job of capturing all the things we love in just 99½ poems!”
Inspired by cowboy poetry, "99½ Homesteading Poems," engages, inspires, and empowers homesteaders, urban-farmers and city slickers to start living a sustainable, self-reliant life.
