Raymond Reitze, at sixty-five, lives without wired electricity or running water, choosing to live as simply and as close to nature as he can. As a child growing up on his family's farm, Ray spent most of his time learning from a Native American Mic Mac elder who lived on his family's property. From what he learned as a child, Ray has gained international attention for his wilderness skills and way of living on the land. While many people come to him for classes and guidance, Ray's greatest aspiration is peace and quiet.
