The New Era of Self-Sufficiency
"With my background in survival skills, I recognized that it was fundamentally the same issue. We are all on one great survival trip, trying to figure out how to meet our needs for shelter, fire, water, and food - preferably without destroying the planet in the process. That really is the bottom line: How can we sustainably meet our needs for shelter, water, fire, and food without consuming all the earth's resources, without altering the climate, and without being enslaved to a meaningless job until we die?

I just wanted to thank you for sending me Living Homes so quickly! I greatly appreciate it. I am excited about using some of the techniques from it. Also, we have the Art of Nothing Videos that Tom has done and they are awesome!!! My husband and I both enjoy them very much. We have recently moved to the mountains of Kentucky to live "Our Dream". Thanks for helping to inspire us!
