Last night I found a link (don't remember where I found it, so sorry if I'm not giving due credit) to an online book about "Possum Living" or homesteading. The book was written in papered format in the 1970s by a 19 year-old named Dolly Freed who lived on half an acre in Pennyslvania. In the book she describes how she and her father lived off the land, raising and slaughtering rabbits and chickens and picking vegetables from their garden. Highlights include recipes for snapper turtles and other interesting eats. Frugal Zealot, eat your heart out; these people live on a few hundred dollars a year, including taxes.
