resource list/ thoughts

  1. Walden, by Henry David Thoreau, “is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings”.

Published in, 1854, Walden is a first hand account of Thoreau’s experience living off grid.  This book is important because it gives my book a historical branch.

  1. Alone in the Wilderness, is a documentary of Dick Proenneke’s two year adventure living alone in the wilderness. Produced by Bob Swerer, this series I first saw on PBS, many years ago.  It was most likely the first actual reality/show/video of living off grid.  What is today’s, “tiny house nation, off-grid living, mountain living, and many other popular reality shows, was yesterdays, Alone in the Wilderness.  This is a base for the “past” or historical aspect of my book.
  2. Personal journals of Dick Proenneke are written in a book, One Man’s Wilderness, An Alaskan Odyssey, by a good friend of Dick’s, Sam Keith. These journals are very important and play as reminders on what needs to be included from my own experiences.  Historical reference.
  3. http://www.off-grid.net/ This web site is the base of my research for the “future” aspect.
  4. http://earthship.com/ is a website that promotes, and explains a form of off grid, sustainable living, that I would like to model in my own life. The web site has a world of information, including links to other sites that are also in relation to my personal goal.  It combines modern technology with eco-friendly living, which is what makes it possible for more people to go off grid.  “future” section of book.
