Possum Living in vogue again

In 1978 a semi-literate 18-year-old became a literary sensation when she published 'Possum Living', a guide to living on the cheap. This documentary follows her lifestyle and the ensuing public interest in her hillbilly, low-cost lifestyle. Her story had an interesting ending - she went to college and became a NASA scientist! With the rise in interest in frugal living, Possum Living is a charming and mildly eccentric glimpse of doing things differently.
