I still can’t believe I’m going to be living in Pai for 3 months. See you in a week Thailand.
“…the Holy Spirit came upon the people not in a temple but in a home. Suppose the Holy Spirit had come upon them when they were in the Temple, what would have happened? Then we would have associated the Holy Spirit with ornate ritual, sacred vestments, and awesome precincts. That would have been the native air of the Spirit. To get Him, we would have to repair to the Temple. He would be found there and only there…It was no mere chance that Jesus predicted the Temple would be destroyed and not one stone be left upon another. It had to be. For the center was now the human heart…The center of holiness is in the persons and their purposes. If the people come to the church or the cathedral in pride, in self-seeking, in narrow exclusiveness of race or class denomination, in an unconscious attempt to attain approval of their fellows, then the place is unholy, whoever dedicated it to a ritual holiness. It is intrinsically unholy.”

PIONEERS PRESS NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Hey folks! We’re still trying to recover financially and emotionally from our mega-bad breakup with Microcosm Publishing (you know how it goes, he got the house and the car, we got the hungry kids, the dog, and the therapist bills) and we’re having a hell of a time keeping the lights on here at the distro.
People have asked us how they can help besides ordering from us so we put together this list. Anything you can do would be hugely appreciated!
*Help Spread the Word! Let your buddies know about the new Pioneers Press! Link to us on your blog. We need all the help we can get to let people know who we are and what we’re doing.
*Pass out our catalogs or flyers! If you’re down to drop off some of our flyers at your neighborhood bookstore or venue, get in touch and we’ll send you a stack.
*Be Our “Friend”! When we split from Microcosm Publishing we had to start from scratch out in the social networking world. (Oh, the horror!) Want updates on new titles, contests, and sales? Follow us!
*Sign Up For Our Newsletter! This is another great way to find out about new titles, our monthly contests, and super-secret deals for our newsletter subscribers!
*Give Us Feedback! Love the zine you just bought? Go to our website and add a comment on the zine’s product page. Happy with our service? Spread the word! Think we screwed something up? Let us know so we can fix it! Can’t find the zine you’re looking for? Tell us and we’ll try to track it down for you. We want to stock awesome stuff and provide great customer service but we can’t do that without your input and feedback.
*Share some loot! We love to include freebies with our orders, so if you’ve got free mini-zines, stickers or patches promoting your zine, postcards advertising your indie business, bookmarks promoting your latest project, or other small fun things that’ll fit in a priority mail envelope send them our way!
*Send us a postcard! Dudes, some days we get so bummed out and weighed down by messages from haters, ex-friends, and bill collectors that we want to throw in the towel and never leave the farm again. Love letters and care packages from strangers are what got us through this winter. Keep ‘em coming!
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! Orders@pioneerspress.com
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

A Guide to Living Off Nature’s Bounty in Urban, Rural and Wilderness Areas
Feral Forager is an excellent green anarchist guide to scavenging and foraging for food in modern and industrialized environments as well as in the wild. Reconnect with the world around you by learning to recognize edible plants, animals, and fungi. With this zine as your guide, let a walk in the woods double as an ingredient-gathering trip for your dinner.
The zine is just as much about reconnecting with the living spaces around us as it is about finding sustenance. How to evaluate the edibility of, and prepare roadkill, how to skin and tan animals using a frame, what kinds of bugs you can eat, are all covered. Almost half the zine is devoted to a fully illustrated guide to wild plant foraging. Learn about lamb’s quarters, dandelion, chickweed, acorns and more.
Plants useful for medicine and mushroom identification are also covered.Available from The Alchemist’s Closet »
- Never take anything that is endangered or at risk. Stay up to date on which plant species are becoming less abundant in the wild. https://www.unitedplantsavers.org/content.php/121-species-at-risk
- Try not to take more than 10-30 percent of one plant per area unless it is something extremely…
