The Encyclopedia of Country Living by Carla Emery
The Encyclopedia of Country Living

Autumn Doxsee, December 10, 2011

I came across this book at the age of 19, with out a Mother it taught me everything except how to find this vast book store name Powell's . I lost my first copy of The Encyclopedia of Country Living ,by Carla Emery. I personally think it was stolen.I thought I'd die. Then two miracles happened.
Then I found Powell's ---Not only did Powell's have it but they had the new version, which by the way is on the way to the top for best survival book. So, I missed 25 years of noodle making, homemade mayonnaise, how to butcher a chicken, homemade soap. I make the best homemade pickles but I can enjoy my own homemade cocoa and try to read a whole city block of Powell's Books.
