The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living is a mixture of memoir, polemic, and self help. From washing the dishes and bathing, to eating without refrigeration, gardening without running water, and more, this book reveals empowering low-cost off the grid living methods that make you more free.
Get Ready for an EMP, blackouts, brownouts, or just learn how to drastically conserve your resources.
Disdained and misunderstood by the modern masses, simple unhooked living can be comfortable, affordable, and secure when done right. Some people actually prefer it! Imagine the security of knowing that you will be fine whether or not there is power and running water.
Water Shortages? Power Disruptions? EMP? Preparedness is Key.
Even those who don’t want to live off the grid full time can benefit from the knowledge of how it’s done. With water shortages and power disruptions rolling across the land, people who learn basic techniques of self-reliance will know how to be prepared and maintain well-being. Why not learn from those who have perfected how to live well without running water and corporate power?
The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living is about me, a city girl, that went to the Northwest woods and learned to live simply without electricity and running water. I survived to report how my unhooked cohorts and I managed to provide for life’s basic necessities simply and gracefully with very little money.
I wrote The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living to preserve my experiences of taking care of life’s basic needs without pipes and wires. Most people think it’s impossible or horrible to live that way, but actually, it’s rather pleasant. Anyone can become remarkably empowered and independent by living very simply, without even electricity and running water.
Since most people fear the idea, mindful simplicity is often ignored, with the result that the liberty to dwell simply and intentionally on the land is disappearing, just when we need it most.
Most Americans recoil at the idea of simple living. So, while they were busy with other concerns, a slew of regulations have been made against thriving and surviving simply on the land. Every elemental act, from building a fire to drinking milk has a regulation attached to it.
When simple and traditional grassroots answers to life’s needs become illegal, the society is sick and lost, and we’re in big trouble. People are not free when they have to ask the government for permission to survive.
I hope this book will play a part in waking people up to the fact that the right to intentional simple living needs to be preserved.
