Format: Hardcover
I just bought this book for $.90 without knowing anything about it. Now that I have had a chance to skim through and read a few of the chapters, I honestly think it might be one of the best homesteading books I have. There is so much packed into this little book. The book itself is an oldy! The pictures are a bit blurry and outdated, but the illustrations are great and the information contained, A+! Some of the things that I am excited about are which foods to plant in your garden to feed your livestock. There are lists of different plants I would have never thought to grow like Kale and Mangel Beets. I have never seen a list of healthy roots that can be grown and stored all winter to feed and supplement, ultimately lessening the costs of feed. Or Comfrey as an additional form of hay, also able to store throughout the winter. It shows illustrations of the different cuts of meat in various animals. And something I have been planning to purchase is a wood cook stove. It gives some ideas and advice in selecting used or run down stoves. What to avoid and how you can fix problems. I do not think this is the only book a homesteader will need, but I am so glad I bought it. It is a welcomed addition to my collection of homesteading books. I am finding that the oldies seem to carry so much relevant information lost. We are creating a new path of self sufficiency, but those who came before us lived it! I have had nothing but good luck in purchasing old how to books. ;)
