“It was here in this Trimble County, Ky., river bottom that Harlan and Anna Hubbard spent 34 years living off the land by tending goats, gardening, canning, fishing, weaving, gathering wood and scavenging for useful items that washed ashore.…
“…By all accounts, the Hubbards graciously invited everyone in, often fed them and led tours of their quaint household, which to this day lacks electricity, plumbing or running water.…”
The Hubbards remind me somewhat of Helen and Scott Nearing, who wrote Living the Good Life (1954). They were heros of ’60s homesteaders, gardeners and builders.
