Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Melissa Coleman spent the formative years of her childhood roaming the lands of her family's farm in rural Maine. Melissa, her sister Heidi, and their parents, Eliot and Sue Coleman, lived off the grid, grew their own organic food, and became media darlings when the Wall Street Journal ran an article about her father. Coleman writes about that time in her memoir This Life is in Your Hands. The piece begins with a reading from the book's beginning, by Sheila Shigley.

Next, Jeremy Seifert fed his wife and son on pickings from the local dumpsters in Los Angeles California. The adventure awakened him to the immense waste of food going on in America every day. The result is his documentary Dive! which urges stores and individuals to work together to find solutions to food waste and hunger.

Then, William Powers had returned home from abroad to find himself in shock at the excess of American culture. Then he found a woman he calls Dr. Jackie Benton, living sustainability in a 12 x 12 foot house in rural North Carolina. He tells her story and what it can teach the rest of us in the book Twelve by Twelve.

And finally, devastated at the unexpected death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed embarked on a three-month solo trip along the rugged Pacific Crest Trail. Those 94 days changed her life in ways she could never have imagined. She writes about that transformative time in her memoir Wild. [Broadcast Date: February 22, 2013]
