Product Description

What Henry David Thoreau did for two years Anna and Harlan Hubbard did for forty. Anna and Harlan lived life as few people in modern times have and in doing so inspired thousands. Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard , a new documentary by Morgan Atkinson, brings to life their adventures. Wendell Berry, the nationally renowned writer and environmentalist, was an Hubbard friend and wrote a book on their lives called Harlan Hubbard: Life and Work. This book provides much of the narrative thread for the program. Mr. Berry also serves as the narrator for the documentary. Harlan was an artist, writer and naturalist born in northern Kentucky. Anna, a scholar and librarian from Grand Rapids, MI. They met in Cincinnati and began their life together in the mid-1940 s by building a boat, then floating from Cincinnati to New Orleans. Their voyage lasted five years. They then settled on the banks of the Ohio River in rural Kentucky. In a house they built by hand, sustained by food they raised or caught, aided by no electricity or modern convenience, Anna and Harlan, met the world on their own terms and found deep meaning. Wonder considers their astonishing life of freedom and what it says to Americans today.

Remarkable tale of Harlan and Anna, their decision not to work for THE MACHINE, but to find a way of living natural lives as free of money as possible. Long before popular movements of the eco-kind, they made their houseboat and floated away. They were young, they made music, they invented solutions on a daily basis, made friends and grew together in laughter and work.Years later, they built a wooden house, grew as much food as they could and lived fulfilling lives. Sadly they had no children, but inspiring story!

Picture quality good. It is a full hour of information. A documentary. Just wasn't what I expected. I grew up going to the Hubbards with family, school trips, and church outings. Seeing first hand their home and artwork. Will keep my copy. I would suggest going to a local showing if you have a chance and then decide wheter to buy your own copy or not.

A remarkable litany concerning the iconoclastic lives of Harlan and Anna Hubbard who lived a Walden-like existence on the Ohio River for 40 years, w/ contributions from Wendell Berry, Will Oldham and Ben Solee. Gives one pause re: our gadget filled, smart phone obsessed lives and what constitutes true fulfillment.
