Elmet
A highly self-sufficient family live more or less off-grid in the woods, but Mum is no longer with them. Dad used to work as an enforcer for the local landowners mafia but has rebelled and when the landowner starts to bully them he encites his fellow downtrodden tenants to rebel against rent increases. Dad is also a champion bare-knuckle fighter, which is handy, and a natural woodsman. Daniel, the son tells the story of his and his sister's unusual upbringing.
Very good story, weird but highly convincing.
