Helen and Scott Nearing, authors of Living the Good Life and many other bestselling books, lived together for 53 years until Scott's death at age 100. Loving and Leaving the Good Life is Helen's testimonial to their life together and to what they stood for: self-sufficiency, generosity, social justice, and peace.

In 1932, after deciding it would be better to be poor in the country than in the city, Helen and Scott moved from New York Ciy to Vermont. Here they created their legendary homestead which they described in Living the Good Life: How to Live Simply and Sanely in a Troubled World, a book that has sold 250,000 copies and inspired thousands of young people to move back to the land.

The Nearings moved to Maine in 1953, where they continued their hard physical work as homesteaders and their intense intellectual work promoting social justice. Thirty years later, as Scott approached his 100th birthday, he decided it was time to prepare for his death. He stopped eating, and six weeks later Helen held him and said goodbye.

Loving and Leaving the Good Life is a vivid self-portrait of an independent, committed and gifted woman. It is also an eloquent statement of what it means to grow old and to face death quietly, peacefully, and in control. At 88, Helen seems content to be nearing the end of her good life. As she puts it, "To have partaken of and to have given love is the greatest of life's rewards. There seems never an end to the loving that goes on forever and ever. Loving and leaving are part of living."

Helen's death in 1995 at the age of 92 marks the end of an era. Yet as Helen writes in her remarkable memoir, "When one door closes, another opens." As we search for a new understanding of the relationships between death and life, this book provides profound insights into the question of how we age and die.

This was the third book by Helen Nearing that I have read, and it is far and away my favorite. Unlike "The Good Life", it does not go into the technical details of setting up a homestead. Unlike "Wise Words For the Good Life", it is not merely a collection of wise words to ponder. THIS book is personal - autobiographical. She writes of her privileged upbringing; her wandering the globe with Krishnamurti, and her meeting with Scott Nearing. She also gives us insight into the early life of her husband, and his struggles with a society he saw as dehumanizing and destined to fail. Both were pioneers of the "Back to the Earth" movement, although I don't believe they set out to be so. The most touching thing about this book, though, was Helen's account of Scott's final days and his decision to leave the world on his own terms.

There is so much wisdom, so much to digest here. It inspires us to live life fully - every day; and to live with a greater sense of purpose.

Recommended highly.

Really enjoyed reading Loving and Leaving The Good Life. Many tender memories are shared by the author. Easy read. Even thought this is an old book there are many insights to be learned

For the reader who is interested in principled people who made a series of transitions out of choice and necessity. The Nearing's rugged individualist days of trial, triumph and living in ways they wouldn't trade for other compromises are defining and provide an excellent source of perspective on values and points of conclusion.

I enjoyed reading the book and would have liked more details included as I felt that there are still many questions that the book left unanswered.

great condition
sobolica
excellent (with one word i can say everything. this new amazon requirement to explain with so many words seems to me out of place. i hope they go back to the prior way of giving feed back. its easier and faster)
This is a book I will keep in my library for future reference. In fact I am checking out some other books she has written.
