Title

Hogwild: A Back-to-the-Land Saga

Description

In Hogwild: A Back-to-the-Land Saga, readers learn that the term “Hogwild” was an outrageous ideology—that a loosely organized confederation of like-minded individuals could carve out a simple country lifestyle from an enclave of mountain land, raise their own crops, bring up their children in peace and serenity, and build their own free-spirited houses with logs timbered from the local forest in an environmentally conservative fashion. It was in the 1970s that Jock Lauterer, a photographer turned builder, joined six other families on a 300 acre homesteading community in the Southern Appalachian mountain range. He documented his experience through pictures and vivid descriptions of the process of building “Old Tom,” the house that eventually housed him and his family.
