Resource Description
NEARING, The Making of a Homesteader. Saltmarsh. Scott Nearing has inspired several generations of proteges, many of whom are among the drivers of the contemporary homesteading movement, including Eliiot Coleman, Kirkpatrick Sale, Rob Roy, and Donella Meadows. Along with Helen, his wife for more than 50 years and his co-author on Living the Good life, Nearing's fierce and eloquent writings were a catalyst for the back-to-the-land activism of the latter 20th century. John Saltmarsh concentrates on Nearing's building of his life in harmony with the land. He captures the complexity of the social critic's ideals along with the simple practicality in which they're grounded. Saltmarsh traces Nearing's life from his difficult early years as an outspoken radical in urban American to his more peaceful years of maturity homesteading in Vermont and Maine, where he and Helen grew their own food, built their own buildings, and wrote iconoclastic and influential books about sustainable living as an antidote to conserism and environmental destruction. A superb analysis of Nearing's ideas and practice. #SPC-73.
