In 1980, before living simply and "green" became trendy and popular, Doris Janzen Longacre, author of the enormously popular More-with-Less Cookbook (over 900,000 sold), wrote Living More with Less, a practical guide for living in simple, sustainable, and healthy ways-ways that keep the future of the planet, and the plight of poor people, in mind.

Thirty years later, Living More with Less 30th Anniversary Edition is being released as a way to celebrate and honor Longacre's foresight and vision, and to pass on her vision for simple and sustainable living to a new generation.

Revised and updated by Valerie Weaver-Zercher, this 30th anniversary edition is true to author Doris' spirit of living in ways that keeps poor people, God's creation and each other in mind-and is loaded with new and practical tips in areas such as money, travel, clothing, housing, celebrations and recreation.

"Living More with Less 30th Anniversary Edition collects the wisdom and experience of those who live with less than a consumer culture says we need. With stories, reflections, and advice from people around the world who are making changes to their daily habits in response to climate change and global poverty, Living More with Less 30th Anniversary Edition is a vibrant collection of testimonies, old and new, of those who are discovering the joy of living with enough."
—Valerie Weaver-Zercher, editor
