More than ever, we seem to be yearning for “the simple life.” We want to reconnect with the land and the environment in a deeper way that can assuage modern ills. We seek a livelihood that exercises body and mind without taking a toll on the planet. We long to nurture spirit and community instead of distracting and isolating ourselves with electronics. Award-winning writer Mark Sundeen's new book, The Unsettlers, traces the search for the simple life through the stories of three very different couples who were inspired to walk away from the life they knew in order to find (or create) a better existence. He shared a little of what he learned about living more sustainably, peacefully, and authentically through the writing of this insightful book.
