Book Review: Off-Grid & Free: My Path to the Wilderness



When Ron Melchiore decided he wanted to live a life different from the day-to-day routine he was beginning to fall into, he kicked off what he describes as a "fortuitous series of events" which eventually led him (and later his wife) to an off-grid homestead.  Off Grid and Free: My Path to the Wilderness if Ron's book that charts their journey toward this way of life.  This book was the featured read for the Summer 2019 Homesteaders' Book Club, and I'm pleased to share our review of this book by a fellow Mother Earth News Writer!

In my opinion, the most important thing to ask yourself if you are considering picking up this book is "Have I ever imagined what it would be like to live off the grid?"  If the answer to that question is "yes" then there is something for you in this book. 

That "something" might be the way that you can relate to Ron and Johanna's story of trying to find their final destination.  Or maybe it’s the tips and tricks of the trade that Ron uncovers as he outlines his strategies for achieving an off-grid lifestyle.  It might just be the ability to read about someone who struggles with the same things you do, and brings a sense of humor to that lifestyle. 

Whatever you take from this book, it is going to relate a lot to where you are in life and what you want to get out of it.
