good points.Copernicus died in vain...that is a bit off, they need to read The Sleepwalkers by Arthur Koestler
Indirectly, Appalachia has been a huge influence on my life. The Herb Book was probably written by someone from there, as were the Foxire books, as was Billy Joe Tatum's wild plants cookbook. When you live in the kind of place Appalachia used to be, you don't need supermarkets, or even very frequent doctor appointments, or very much money. It's not living in Nature: that's like talking about living "in" space; it's living without a certain set of modern accessories that you don't need. Well, except you need them now, because your species has just destroyed the alternative in the name of a more stress-free life that never ended up happening.
