    I became interested in this book after reading about Dolly Freed in a blog Freed a pen name was only 18 when she wrote this book in the 1970s, which in part explains how radical it is She lived with her father in a house outside Philadelphia which they bought for cheap and renovated themselves, and continued to live off the land, not working real jobs or relying on money.One of Freed s main points is how ironic it is that the majority of us work for most of the day in order to make money t I became interested in this book after reading about Dolly Freed in a blog Freed a pen name was only 18 when she wrote this book in the 1970s, which in part explains how radical it is She lived with her father in a house outside Philadel...
