In the late seventies, at the age of eighteen, and with a seventh grade education, Dolly Freed wrote Possum Living about the five years she and her father lived off the land on a half-acre lot outside of Philadelphia. Known for its plucky narration and no-nonsense practical advice on how to live frugally while keeping up a middle class facade, at the time of its original publication, Possum Living became an instant classic.
Now, thirty years later, Freed’s possum lessons on independent thinking and personal economics are as relevant and inspirational as they were in 1978.
If you’ve ever dreamed about quitting the rat race and taking control of your life, spend an afternoon with Dolly Freed’s Possum Living. Inspiring and entertaining, she will show you how.
Documentary directed by Nancy Schreiber.
