Living on The Earth. Celebrations, Storm Warnings, Formulas, Recipes, Rumors, and Country Dances

“A DIY guide to sustainable living, bohemian style, that I created at Wheeler Ranch commune in northern California in the late 1960s. Besides its utility as a craft, gardening, construction, herbal remedy and recipe book, Living on the Earth documents utopian commune life in the late ‘60s (college libraries stock it). It’s also a seminal book design with a recognizable (and much imitated) illustration style. The illustrations continue to appear on fashion and other merchandise from Japan. For some people, Living on the Earth is a source of spiritual inspiration, since it demonstrates living joyously without a lot of money and consumer goods, living close to, and protecting, nature, and living in harmony with others.”
