The Hidden Frontier

This chapter presents an assessment of the changes that have affected both Tret and St. Felix during the economic upswing of the past two decades. The production strategies followed today in Tret, St. Felix, and the other villages of the Upper Anaunia are the result of past emphasis on subsistence production and the villagers' perception of current and future opportunities for the sale of produce. The chapter discusses the changing circumstances; the responses in Tret and St. Felix; the material basis of the good life; and prosperity and misfortune.

Keywords:   Tret, St. Felix, Upper Anaunia, good life, material wealth, misfortune
