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 low-cost living alternatives most modern Americans have completely forgotten about.
Radical simplicity is a reasonable solution for our time.
It may be disdained by the modern masses, but I’m convinced it’s the best way for people to get their lives under control these days, all things considered. From personal to global problems, smart simple living is the simple overlooked answer.
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 explain how my unhooked cohorts and I managed to provide for life’s basic necessities simply and gracefully without much money.
I wrote The Truth About Simple Unhooked Living to preserve the knowledge of how to take 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 just the opposite. We can become remarkably empowered by living very simply, without even electricity and running water. Intentional simplicity, when done with finesse, can be comfortable and empowering.
Water Shortages? Power Disruptions? Read this book.
Even those who don’t want to practice radical simplicity 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 techniques of living well without running water and corporate power?
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 quickly slipping away just when it need it most.
Most Americans recoil at the idea of simple living. While they were busy with other concerns, a slew of regulations have been made against thriving simply on the land. Every elemental act, from building a fire to drinking milk has a regulation attached to it.
When simple grassroots answers to life’s personal and planetary woes 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.
