"Primitive living in today's world is not a way of escaping the contemporary world; we cannot escape it. We are always in the contemporary world; and it is a place where we can no longer hunt the wild Buffalo, because they are gone. It is the same wilderness, but a new reality that we have created. Primitive Living is not a retreat to get away from today's world, but an integral part of contemporary life, a source of perspective and understanding." - Primitive Living, Self-Sufficiency and Survival Skills.
