“The heavily illustrated volume is a collection of photos and essays that…. unfurl the imagination: an Earthship modeled after a Hobbit house, a fire pit in the woods beside a homely black shipping container, a treehouse with a wraparound porch, nestled between birches or aspens. If you really are thinking of returning to the land (or sea), this book will both feed your fantasy and give you a taste of what the experience is really like…. Whether you’re dreaming, hoping or planning, Off Grid Life is a good place to spark — or park — your dreams.”
