"The War between the States... produced the foundation for the kind of government we have today: consolidated and absolute, based on the unrestrained will of the majority, with force, threats, and intimidation being the order of the day." ~ Walter Williams
I am an insatiable reader of non-fiction, mainly military and American history and the 'sciences'. I am a lifetime student of native plant life and am an herbologist of two decades now. I 'collect' 'Native American' artifacts and weaponry. I enjoy gardening, trout fishing, travel, and several forms of crafting. I am a dedicated 'activist' hoping to preserve the environment and culture of this region I am a small part of.
