The View From #410 is a unique autobiographical account by Jean
K. Mason, founder of a multigenerational urban cohousing
community. In her honest and spunky voice, Jean tells of
Cambridge Cohousing's journey into being.

Jean Mason captures many of the typical struggles and joys of
being in on the ground floor of a big, ambitious community
project and offers valuable perspective to anyone starting a
community. She tells of momentous triumphs and also of quarrels
and routine events, such that one gets the big picture as well as
the up-close and personal angle.

Intermingled with the story of the community's beginning is a
glimpse of the author's remarkable life. Mason, who is now in her
80s, has been an activist, mother and grandmother, and her wit
and practical attitude color her writing.

Follow this author on her quest for an alternative lifestyle that
fosters support and cooperation.
