"Living The Good Life being a plain account of a twenty year project in a self-subsistent Homestead in Vermont together with remarks on How to Live Sanely and Simply in a Troubled World by Helen and Scott Nearing publication date"
Living the Good Life, like Walden Pond, is deeply rooted in an enduring American tradition of dissent from the majority and respect for the land. Moreover, it is the distillation of twenty--not two--years in the woods, and it offers wisdom and practical guidance to city dweller and prospective homesteader alike.
This book is a harvest of congenial and specific advice on harmonious rural living, for its authors have proved to themselves--and now to the world--that with hard work and harder common sense, they could take a piece of eroded, stony land and make it bloom and support them. In the process they have achieved something fine for themselves and relevant for everybody.
