Photos and profiles of unconventional homes and the unconventional people who live in them—plus “a wealth of practical advice” for aspiring freedom-seekers (Irish Times).

A reclusive designer living in a custom tiny house in the middle of the Montana wilderness. A couple who traded their expensive Bay Area apartment for a slip at a nearby marina, where they live on a docked sailboat. A family of five who decided to simplify their lives by moving into a school bus, selling most of their possessions in the process. Nomad features their stories, and many more. From vanlifers to boondockers, liveaboards to tiny-house dwellers, these freedom seekers have forged a new way of life for themselves—one that values experiences over things, is environmentally conscious, and is often more budget-friendly than their “rooted” lives ever were.

The digital era has made working from an Airstream beside a roaring river or running a photography business from a mountaintop a reality for many. This book shows you how, with tours of 26 unconventional homes and the people who live in them, plus all the information you need to make your own off-the-grid dream a reality. Included are chapters on bathroom and storage—two of the most challenging aspects of this lifestyle—plus a comprehensive guide to finding the right home, assessing the cost of renovation, handy products for small spaces, and indispensable resources (including sources for replacement RV parts, portable power solutions, tiny wood stoves, and much more).

“Reddington and Richards did a fair bit of wandering on their own for this book—nine road trips to six countries and 11 US states to find, interview and photograph people who come across not so much as running from something as embracing something else—a life less hectic, less cluttered and less destructively obsessed with online stuff…This is a book that will get you thinking.” —Irish Times

“Whether a life on the move is for you, or not, the tips offered by these nomads are valuable lessons to all of us struggling with clutter in the ever more confined spaces of our modern homes.” —The Times (U.K.)
