Synopses & Reviews
Reminiscent in both spirit and design of the beloved Whole Earth Catalog, Country Wisdom and Know-How is an unprecedented collection of information on nearly 200 individual topics of country and self-sustained living. Compiled from the information in Storey Publishing's landmark series of "Country Wisdom Bulletins," this book is the most thorough and reliable volume of its kind. Organized by general topic including animals, cooking, crafts, gardening, health and well-being, and home, it is further broken down to cover dozens of specifics from "Building Chicken Coops" to "Making Cheese, Butter, and Yogurt" to "Improving Your Soil" to "Restoring Hardwood Floors." Nearly 1,000 black-and-white illustrations and photographs run throughout and fascinating projects and trusted advice crowd every page.

About the Author
Storey Books started out with a mission to serve our customers by publishing practical information that encourages personal independence in harmony with the environment. We started out in our rural Vermont office with a handful of gardening books and an even smaller handful of employees. But our collection soon grew to include books on herbs, cooking, crafts, natural health and beauty, and animals. A lot has changed since then. We're now publishing practical, how-to information on subjects such as feng shui and aromatherapy--unheard of in 1973! But no matter what the topic, our books are still designed to help you live a simpler, more satisfying life.
