A properly managed privy is at least as healthful for people and land as a septic system and is far more than a place to evacuate waste. Ours is a sanctuary in which to be quiet with no one to ask why you aren't busy; to think or read with no one waiting to get in to shave; to watch a small, pretty piece of the day pass outside (one of the clapboards on our outhouse has a crack that's perfect for viewing through, like Arctic sunglasses.

My great-grandmother had a hand pump in her kitchen. There was also a hand pump just off the back porch with a tin cup on a chain. Best tasting water in the world came from that well.
