Title (The) New Settler Interviews
Author Bosk, Beth Robinson, editor
Physical Description v. 1 : ill. ; 26 cm
Published Date 2000
Summary Boogie at the Brink presents the reader with interviews from the 1980s and 90s. Bosk's subjects are rustic, off-the- gridders--mostly those attempting to make and promote a low impact on nature through independent action and work. Interviewees include dowser Charlie Acker, Toolmaker Don Weber, Shakuhachi- flute maker, Monty Levenson, Midwife Carol Miller, and tree-sitter extraordinaire, Julia Butterfly, interviewed by cell phone while still cradled in the boughs of Luna. These interviews chronicle attempts at new local cultures . The counterculture continues to reproduce itself, even if on the margins, and mostly removed from media attention. Bosk is editor of New Settler Interview.
