    This book tells the story of a family who decided to live off their land for six months They try not to spend any money, and live as sustainably as possible This book is Australian, and there was a lot of Aussie slang in the writing, which was interesting I also learned a lot about water and power conservation Unfortunately, I also found this book to be a bit dull I m not quite sure why.
