Synopses & Reviews
An inspirational gathering of thoughts on living a good old age into death, selected by the coauthor of the bestselling LIVING THE GOOD LIFE. With her husband, Scott--who lived to be 100--Helen Nearing (1904-1995) was a leading voice in the self-sufficiency movement and nonconformist thinking. Here she reflects, through the wise words of others, on the meaning of a long life and the wonder of what lies beyond.
A treasury of wisdom on growing old gracefully-featuring the words of Ovid, Thomas Jefferson, Walt Whitman, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Henry James, Carlos Castenada, Annie Dillard, Anatole Broyard, and many others-compiled by the renowned coauthor of Living the Good Life just before her death at age 91.
