When not telling stories, Louise has milked cows in Vermont, sailed a two-masted schooner from Leningrad to NY with a crew of Soviets and Americans (in 1989), worked on board the Sloop Clearwater “flagship of the environmental movement” on the Hudson River, lived on an uninhabited island in Maine, and slept in a cave in Alabama.
Now, she lives with her husband Holmes, and their two children on Clapping Hands Farm, an off-the-grid homestead in Pittsboro, NC – the home of Clapping Hands Farm summer camps and other programs for children.
