Country Living includes how to cultivate a garden, buy 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
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.
