About This Show
(Originally broadcast 12/05/08) - Logan Ward and his wife, Heather, had traveled the world—Kenya, France, Peru. But nothing compared to their next adventure: a trip back in time, living the life of dirt farmers in rural Virginia circa 1900. Disillusioned by city life, the Wards pulled their son out of daycare and traded skyscrapers for silos in search of simpler times. Adopting strict rules that limited them to only the tools that were available at the turn of the century, they faced a year of struggles, where unremarkable feats—putting food on the table, attending a neighbor’s 4th of July party—became the worthiest accomplishments of their lives.
Logan Ward shares this life changing experience, chronicled in his book See You in a Hundred Years. Publishers Weekly says of the book, "This lyrical account of keeping the 21st century at bay is more real, and more rewarding, than any survival TV show."
Logan talks with Dr. Edgar about his family's journey back in time, and how he and his wife found a new love and respect for their Southern roots.
