This chapter discusses Harlan Hubbard, who, along with his wife, is called a modern homesteader. They had first become well-known for building their own shanty boat. They used this to float down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to bayou country, a trip that lasted over a year. The Hubbards are a good example of what contrary Organic Gardening readers wanted to know about. This chapter focuses on their circumscribed life, from a description of their home to their daily chores and activities.
