William McKinley Crews, 81, washes his face after eating breakfast at the farmhouse where he has lived all his life. The homestead in Moccasin Swamp, northern Florida, has no electricity or running water. Since his brother died, he keeps company with four cows and 14 cats. He is one of the last of the "old swampers" a reference to early settlers who lived in rural wetlands.
