Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • The bestselling resource for modern homesteading, growing and preserving foods, and raising chickens, The Encyclopedia
    of Country Living includes how to cultivate a garden, buy land, bake bread, raise farm animals, make sausage, can
    peaches, milk a goat, grow herbs, churn butter, build a chicken coop, catch a pig, cook on a wood stove, and much, much
    more. This comprehensive resource is the most authoritative guide available to a sustainable lifestyle and living off of
    the land.

    Carla Emery started writing The Encyclopedia of Country Living in 1969 during the back-to-the-land movement of that
    time. She continued to add content and refine the information over the years, and the book went from a self-published
    mimeographed document to a book of 928 pages.

    This 40th Anniversary Edition reflects the most up-to-date resource information and the most personal version of the
    book that became Carla Emery's life work. It is the original manual of basic country skills that have proved essential
    and necessary for people living in the country, the city, and everywhere in between.

    Carla Emery's The Encyclopedia of Country Living contains 1,000,000 words, 2,000+ recipes, and 1,500+ mail-order sources
    (for everything she tells you how to do, she also tells you where to get the supplies to do it). This book is so basic,
    so thorough, so reliable, that it deserves a place in every home.
