Pioneers in Sustainable Living

Near Cosby, Tennessee in the mid-1970s, this couple owned a small farm in the hills and hollows. Most people would have called them poor; they certainly didn’t have much by the standards of their day. However, they were supremely adapted to their environment. They depended on the outside world for very little and were self-sufficient in their own way. You might say they were pioneers in sustainable living.
