520    Like so many other city-dwellers, Cam and Michelle Mather 
       longed for a simpler, quieter life in the country. When 
       they found a century-old farmhouse on 150 acres of land 
       that was in their price range, they jumped at the chance 
       to make their move. The fact that the home was "off-grid" 
       with no power or telephone lines connecting it to the 
       outside world seemed like a bonus! Twelve years later 
       their life in the country is not quite as simple as they 
       had envisioned, but it is peaceful. There were more 
       challenges than they could have anticipated, as well as 
       more rewards. Along the way they installed more solar 
       panels, erected a wind turbine, and upgraded and replaced 
       all of the major components of their off-grid electrical 
       system. They installed a solar-thermal hot water system; 
       figured out how to have a phone, internet, and satellite 
       TV; and kept their home heated with wood cut from their 
       own property. They also carved out a garden and began 
       growing much of their own food. -- taken from book cover
