I wanted to start a thread which may end up spawning some sub-forums, but I was wondering if there are any good biographies or stories of people in permaculture or pre-permaculture pioneers.

Stories which have already been written, or which are currently part of the oral tradition.

Stories about their exploits, obstacles they faced, problems they solved.

Not about the projects so much as the people.

I wrote to the producers of one of my favorite podcasts (with a presumably large audience) suggesting that they do a show about permaculture, and they wrote back saying that while the show is a form of science journalism, their angle is to present the information in a narrative format and they seemed to want to know about people they could talk about.

If anyone knows of any stories from the lives of permaculture greats, past and present, please share them.
