Product Details

Praise

“Helen and Scott Nearing are the great-grandparents of the back-to-the-land movement, having abandoned the city in 1932 for a rural life based on self-reliance, good health, and a minimum of cash. . . . Fascinating, timely, and wholly useful, a mix of the Nearings’ challenging philosophy and expert counsel on practical skills.”
—The Washington Post Book World

“A prophetic account of the creation of a self-sufficient little Walden . . . that has been an underground bible for the city-weary.”
Newsweek 

“The Nearings are plain daylight, solid prose, sound information.”
The New York Times Book Review 

“As close to a Walden for out times as we’re likely to see.”
 —Yankee Magazine
