This was an interesting read. There is some good information here for anyone, about living and cooking outdoors, edible plants and how to prepare them, making shelters from common items, how to stay warm for long winter periods, insulating using things found in the wilderness, etc. The good information is in here. But alongside that are things I don't agree with at all, like the claim that it's fine to use the same condom a dozen times so long as you wash it and take good care of it. Or showering only your "crotch and hair". Might be alright for someone, but it's a little too extreme for me.

This book could easily be retitled to "Successful Hoboing", "Hobo Housekeeping", or "1001 Uses For Bike Innertube".

So yes, it's true that some parts of this book grossed me out, but oddly enough (or not) all of those articles seem to come from the same woman. The rest is really interesting to me for one main reason: there is a whole society of people living this way, right under our noses, and that aspect is truly captivating. Some of the methods and uses of common items we would discard as trash is extremely clever and deserving of praise.

If you'd like an interesting read that is in a true entrepreneurial spirit, I recommend this book.

If you are going to be grossed out by the legions of semi-washed hippies that grace it's pages, I do not recommend this book. Personally, I bought the other two, so more reviews as I finish those.
