Best Pick for Summer 2013 - Publishers Weekly
. . . alternately funny, tender, philosophical, and practical. . . bringing the back-to-the-land genre up to date with impressive sophistication and appeal. - Publishers Weekly

Two part memoir one part tutorials, this is the inspirational story of how we ditched our careers and high-pressure life in New York City to move to rural New Mexico, where we made, built, invented, foraged, and grew all we needed to live self-sufficiently, discovering a new sense of abundance in the process.

Alongside our personal story are tips and tutorials to guide you in the discovery of a fulfilling new lifestyle that relies less on money. We believe that everyone has the skill and creativity to make it work.

The Good Life Lab not only teaches the art of making biofuel, appliances, structures, gardens, food, and medicine but is filled with illustrations contributed by a community of artists and illustrators, making the book a work of art. It shows readers how to create out of waste, reconnect with nature, and live off the grid -- it is the manual for life in a post-consumer age.
