This College Student Lives In The Woods To Prove A Very Important Point

Apr 8, 2015
The works of naturalist authors like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau are well known to students of American Literature. As two major figures of the Transcendentalism movement in the late 1820s and '30s, Emerson and Thoreau's works have inspired countless young students to embrace nature and self-reliance. It is unlikely, though, that many have been as inspired by their words as Juniata College senior Dylan Miller.

Dylan has built a hut in the woods near his school in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania as part of his senior project. The hut took about two months to build, but he managed to save himself $4,000 per semester by living off of his own hard work.
