Based upon the journal they kept it seeks to illustrate the advantages and challenges of an "off-grid", semi nomadic existence. Effecting radical life changes involves risk and the possibility of disappointment or of making a disastrous mistake.
This true story addresses these issues offering advice and encouragement for others who would follow suit. The day to day chronicle is interspersed with comments on news events, points of historical interest, literary quotations and some of the author's own poems.
As atypical as its creator, this book is hard to categorise for it is part travel writing, part poetry, part confessional and part philosophy; but above all it is thought provoking!
