Crazy Idealists - The CAT Story

This book is out of print but you can download it as a free pdf here.

In the early 1970's, a derelict slate quarry in mid-Wales was colonised by a group of young idealists looking to test the different technologies and ways of living they believed might avert imminent ecological meltdown. Many of the original group's ideas, once thought radical, are now mainstream accepted practice.

"A magnificent testimony to an inspiring place"

"CAT has helped reshape the attitudes of an entire generation, enabled countless
individuals to take big ideas, simplify them and give them a practical application in our
daily lives"
