Helen Knothe & Scott Nearing (New Astrology data and charts)

* Helen Nearing's book, Loving and Leaving the Good Life, contains her and her centenarian husband Scott's birth data.

Helen Knothe Nearing (February 23, 1904 – September 17, 1995) was an American author and the second wife of Scott Nearing. Helen Knothe and Scott Nearing started their relationship together in 1928. They married nearly twenty years later on December 12, 1947.

The Nearings lived a simple life in rural Vermont where they grew much of their own food and erected nine stone buildings over the course of two decades. Cash was earned from producing maple syrup and sugar from the trees on their land and from Scott Nearing's occasional paid lectures.
