The first homesteading book I ever read, the original, the classic:
Living the Good Life: How to Live Sanely and Simply in a Troubled World by Helen and Scott Nearing (1954)
“Everywhere in the world the galloping urbanization is proving to be ecologically and fiscally unviable; worse, it is impossible to bring up citizens in urban and suburban areas that are no longer cities. The processing and social engineering that go with the conditions have called forth waves of populist protest, articulate and inarticulate, by those who are pushed around and find themselves without power. And finally, the expanding Gross National Product, the ever higher Standard of Living, which was the justification for all this, has begun to yield sharply diminishing returns, trivial goods, incompetent services, base culture, and spiraling inflation.”
Introduction by Paul Goodman, 1970
