From craft culture to survivalists, preppers, homesteaders, urban farmers and everywhere in between there is a want to reinvigorate a simpler way of life – a healthier, greener, more self-sustaining way of life – that offers a more holistic approach to modern life.
The knowledge you need to survive and thrive off the grid is at your fingertips in The Encyclopedia of Country Living, the bestselling resource for the homesteading movement. With its origins in the back-to-the-land effort of the late 1960s, Carla Emery’s landmark book has grown into a comprehensive guide to building your sustainable country escape haven, while lowering your carbon footprint in the process.
The 40th Anniversary Edition offers up-to-date and detailed information on the fundamentals of topics like homegrown food, raising chickens, goats and pigs, beekeeping, food preservation, mail-order supply sourcing, foraging, and much, much more (even how to deliver a baby)—everything you need to lead a self-sufficient lifestyle in the 21st century.
Basic, thorough, and reliable, this book deserves a place in urban and rural homes alike.
