Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This book tells the story of a remarkable experimental community in Columbia named Gaviotas. Founded in 1971 in the midst of the war-torn Columbian countryside and funded by the United Nations, the settlers there invented numerous technologies and t echniques that allowed them to survive in the harsh tropical conditions. The village is now widely regarded as a model for Third World sustainable development. The author tells the story of the community primarily through conversations with the com munitys residents and founder. No index.
