The last Martin of Gilchrist County

With a love of history, and strong ties to the place, Nathan Martin, 72, has a deep respect for the land and its creatures, and believes in living as simply as possible. His cabin outside of Bell, Fla. does have electricity, but no running water. It has heat, but only through a wood-burning stove that he also uses to cook on, and no air conditioning. He doesn't believe in using credit to pay for anything, or having many wants outside of a new library book to read each week, and an occasional can of beer in the evening. He also leaves the woods on the weekends to see his wife of 14 years, Vida. (March 2, 2014) MELISSA LYTTLE | Times
