Monday Morning Amazement

I found this incredible story about extreme homesteading on the Smithsonian Magazine website. A Russian family moved to Siberia in 1936 to avoid religious persecution under the Communist rule. They were 150 miles from the nearest people and lived undiscovered until 1978. For 40 years they lived only with what they had carried with them when they left and what they could grow, make, hunt, or forage.
