Fascinating story of the birth of modern self-sufficiency,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Good Life: Helen and Scott Nearing's Sixty Years of Self-Sufficient Living (Paperback)
As founder of the first Self-Sufficiency group in the UK in 1978 (which is still going strong!), and having read all the popular books at that time on the subject (John Seymour and Patrick Rivers in particular), I had little idea that the origins of the movement went back to the 1930s. It is a fascinating read, and doesn't sound at all outdated as I had feared. Recommended.
