Join Ehris, Velya, and Jim in their magnificent adventure
to an unknown future...


When a small-town Connecticut family decides that Mexican mansion life isn't for them, they start hunting for a Yucatecan ranch where they can drop off the radar and live self-sufficiently. They're not city-slickers, and have raised chickens, geese, goats, and Madeline-the-pot-bellied-pig - but this will be their introduction to horses, food forests, calving, breadfruit, chaya, and growing cacao!


They've always been a little offbeat. From following the Blood Type Diet for 25+ years ➜ homeschooling ➜ moving to rural Brazil to open a dairy farm and an English school ➜ feeding their pets raw ➜ living in a 1770 haunted house ➜ using no allopathics ➜ finding a (verified) 18th century human molar in their Connecticut kitchen sink!

Velya and Ehris are published authors and speakers who concentrate on living holistically and "herstory unsanitized." They explore censored women's history and encourage readers and audiences to cultivate holistic confidence. Jim's creative problem solving philosophy enables him to tackle any project.

Most people will choose unhappiness over uncertainty. But some of the best chapters in your life won't have a title until you're halfway into the book! If you have the urge to live boldly, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically, and beautifully - this family will inspire you!
