about this book

This edition of Living the Good Life and Continuing the Good Life brings together in one volume the Nearings' classic guides to the theory and practice of rural homesteading. With a 1989 Preface by Helen Nearing.

"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."--Washington Post Book World
