Living Well Without a Job and With (Almost) No Money

Looking to bypass the money economy? By adopting “possum living,” it is possible to get the good things in life without having to go to a boring, meaningless, frustrating job to get the money to buy them. In this excerpt from “Possum Living: Living Well Without a Job and With (Almost) No Money,” Dolly Freed shares why she decided to shun the rat race and live off the land on a half-acre lot outside Philadelphia. Originally published in the late 1970s when Freed was 18 years old, “Possum Living” is part philosophical treatise, part down-to-earth how-to, and provides a no-nonsense approach on how to beat the system and be self-sufficient — right in suburbia.
