When Linda Tatelbaum and her husband headed "back-to-the-land" in 1977 to build a solar house and raise their food in Maine, they found the simple life more complex than they ever imagined. With ingenuity, grit, and flexibility, they balanced their idealistic values with the pragmatic demands of adult life. Through two decades of witnessing rural towns vanishing under pressure from development, Linda's eloquent voice has defended the land, insisting it is not a commodity. A chronicle of keeping faith with nature, these lyrical, wry, and feisty essays celebrate human effort while mourning the loss of wilderness and community.
