Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filled with more than 1,000 recipes, 700 mail-order sources, how-to instructions, and earthly wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of self-sufficient living, this thorough, reliable treasury features 300 illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

Emery's guide to self-sufficiency has been in and out of print since 1970 and provides advice on food growing, raising, and storage; getting one's finances in order; keeping warm without electricity; and going vegetarian. The book is packed with information and should be an invaluable reference for do-it- yourselfers in just about every home-related realm except repair and construction. The last edition's (1994) 1,500 mail-order sources have been checked and updated with e- mail addresses and websites. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Initially self-published 20 years ago, The Encyclopedia of Country Living has become the trusted guidebook to sustainable, self-sufficient living. Filled with memorable anecdotes, crucial advice, and a generous helping of good humor, this compendium provides detailed information about food production — growing, processing, cooking, and preserving — together with hundreds of illustrations and recipes. With updates of over 1,100 mail order sources, including websites and email addresses, this revised edition is the definitive classic text for living off the land. “Carla Emery is certifiably one of the craziest, warmest, ... funniest, wisest, most lovable, and idealistic zanies now walking the earth.” — Mother Earth News
