Description
For more than 40 years, people have relied on Carla Emery's thoughtful, practical, step-by-step advice on basic self-sufficiency skills like how to cultivate a garden, buy land, bake bread, raise farm animals, make sausage, milk a goat, grow herbs, churn butter, build a chicken coop, and cook on a wood stove. Ever since she embarked on the project in 1969, Emery's guide has been continually revised, updated, and expanded, and has grown from a self-published, mimeographed document to an exhaustive reference on growing, processing, cooking, and preserving homegrown foods from the garden, orchard, field, or barnyard, with more than 2,000 recipes and 1500 mail order sources.

"Carla Emery is certifiably one of the craziest, warmest, (sometimes unintentionally) funniest, wisest, most lovable, and idealistic zanies now walking the face of the earth and we think this old world would be a lot better off if we had a few more people like her."—Mother Earth News
