Rosen is a writer and documentary filmmaker who earned his off the grid wings living in a homemade RV in Britain. In this work he travels to the US to document the living off the grid scene by interviewing people of all types and socio-economic groups that have decided, partially or wholly, to live without connection to municipal power and water services. These case studies illuminate the different types of Americans who choose to live this way and the varied arrangements possible within that scope. Right-wing militants eager to keep out of the government's gaze, original or neo-hippies desiring some peace and quiet in a tree house or the new, like-minded family ties of a commune are among the extremes highlighted as Rosen crisscrosses America cataloguing this small but growing trend. With the recession, job losses, and frequent foreclosures, this book should appeal to anyone at all, especially those looking for, as the title says, "more space, less government, and true independence".
