Summary

The definitive book of basic skills and country wisdom for living off the land, being prepared, and doing it yourself--whether it's on a farm or homestead, in the suburbs or city.

From homesteaders to urban farmers, and everyone in between, there is a desire for a simpler way of life—a healthier, greener, more self-sustaining, and holistic approach to modern life.

With its origins in the back-to-the-land movement of the late 1960s, Carla Emery’s landmark book has grown into a comprehensive guide to living a sustainable lifestyle, while lowering your carbon footprint in the process.
