New book about off-grid living from Doubleday

A tour around the UK in an RV, meeting people who live off-grid in boats. RVs, caravans, benders, yurts and even large brick mansions

There are 75,000 living off-grid in the UK all year round, but that number swells to 300,000 in the summer.


This book analyzes what the rest of us can learn from this lifestyle at a time of rising oil prices, house prices and when the chance of the grid shutting down has never been greater.

Extracts are available on the off-grid web site.
