I remembered reading the book in my youth and wanted to see how it held up. Pretty darn well!

It involves a group of 12 families that have left old earth (in about 2012) because they are disgusted with what has become of humanity and what is has wrought on the Earth -- pollution, chemicals and poison in the soil, gmo's, the works (keep in mind this was written in the late '70's/early 80's). They take to the skies and find a new home (far from other humans). Love it!

Oh, did I mention they are all from the Ozarks?
