Portland, ME based writer Joseph Conway has been touring with his first book, Get Back Stay Back: 2nd Generation of Back-to-Tthe-Landers. The book observes 13 families that have exchanged the rat race of modern urban life for the self sufficiency of a simpler life in the woods and fields of Maine. The stories are poignant and challenging as these families face the challenges, and reap the rewards, of their lifestyle choice. Conway also traces the development of the original Back-to-the-Land movement in the 1960’s in this compelling book. I highly recommend picking it up to read for yourself, then share with friends and family.
