William Coperthwaite is a teacher, builder, designer, and writer who for many y ears has explored the possibilities of true simplicityon a homestead on the north coast of Maine. In the spirit of Henry David Thoreau, Emily Dickinson, and Helen and Scott Nearing, Goperthwaite has fashioned a livelihood of integrity and completeness -- buying almost nothing, providing for his own needs and serving as a guide and companion to hundreds of apprentices drawn to his unique way of being. His writing is both philosophical and practical, exploring themes of beauty, work, education, and design while giving instruction on the hand-crafting of the necessities of life. Richly illustrated with luminous color photographs by Peter Forbes, A Handmade Life is a moving and inspirational testament to a new practice of old ways of life.
