Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Payne Hollow: Life on the Fringe of Society (Paperback)
This is an excellent book. It is very accurate as to how many people lived at that time. It should be read by anyone that is thinking about adopting a self sufficient life style.
Mr. Hubbard is a "wordsmith" and writes in an excellent manner with vivid descriptions and a little philosophy thrown in.
You might also want to read "Shantyboat Journal," a history of their trip down the Ohio and the Mississippi in a shantyboat of thier own design and building.
