This is an excellent excellent book Want to know how to put in a cistern? He tells you? Want to dig a privy? He explains it It's big and heavy and looks like a textbook and once I get on my land I'm sure I'll be referring to it often A solid read This is a non fiction reference book one that I hope I get to use over and over again Imagine your grandparents imparting to you all the things they used to do back in their day and this is that book Things like now a wood stove heats a home homestead building gardening farming There is SO MUCH information on everything and since there is so much he doesn't go into fine detail You have to figure out the little points along the way My favorite tip i learned scrub your clothes with a good 'ol washboard i bought one and our family's dirty socks have never been cleaner Many awesome tips and tidbits Ultimately such a gem of a book A valuable source of self sufficiency even though it is outdated I appreciate the level of detail given to the different projects and instructions I borrowed this book from my local library I'm pretty sure this is one of his that I read from the library back in '99 I've been meaning to add his books to my personal library but I've been to broke Not Owned Yet A compendium of lost knowledge Excellent compendium of basic skills that are often not learned or in fairness used in the modern developed world
