On the Grid
A Plot of Land, an Average Neighborhood, and the Systems that Make our World Work
Wires, pipes, roads, and water support the lives we lead, but the average person doesn't know where they go or even how they work. Our systems of infrastructure are not only shrouded in mystery, many are woefully out of date. In On the Grid, Scott Huler takes the time to understand the systems that sustain our way of life, starting from his own quarter of an acre in North Carolina and traveling as far as Ancient Rome.
Scott Huler was born in 1959 in Cleveland and raised in that city's eastern suburbs.
