Here’s a Great Reading List if You’re at All Interested in Self-Sufficient Living
1. Any book written by Helen and Scott Nearing
My entire existence can basically be traced back to a Helen and Scott Nearing book. My dad found Man’s Search for the Good Life on a radiator when he was skipping school back in the ’70s in Needham, Massachusetts. He spent the day reading it, and years later when he was bumming around on his ’83 Sportster thought: Maybe I should give Maine a try. He met my mom, never left, and now I’m one of his two daughters and own my own copy.
