Ebook Description

From craft culture to survivalists, preppers, homesteaders, 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.    The knowledge you need to survive and thrive off the grid is at your fingertips in The Encyclopedia of Country Living, the best-selling 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.Table of Contents1 Oddments2 Introduction to Plants3 Grasses, Grains & Canes4 Garden Vegetables5 Herbs & Flavorings6 Tree, Vine, Bush & Bramble7 Food Preservation8 Introduction to Animals9 Poultry10 Goats, Cows & Home Dairying11 Bee, Rabbit, Sheep & Pig12 Appendix
