After doing a Master's degree in Social Anthropology in New Zealand, Vancouver-born Kristeva Dowling bought land in the Bella Coola Valley in 1993. Her humourous memoir Chicken Poop for the Soul: In Search of Food Sovereignty (Harbour, 2011) describes her not always successful, back-to-the-land efforts to attain 100% food self-sufficiency in 2008 by learning a wide variety of skills--such as growing wheat, canning, tracking wild game, making maple syrup.
