Prompt, courteous, good pricing equals great customer service.

They are simplistic in that they are easy to read and understand, yet are very useful.

This is a good, basic book on dehydrating food every Prepper would find useful.

I have purchased several of these booklets from the Story Country Wisdom series. They by-and-large are ALL good and I have not been dissatisifed with even one of them. They are simplistic in that they are easy to read and understand, yet are very useful. Sadly much of the old art of medicines/home remedy styles, food preprations such as drying foods, and much other preparedness and survival knowledge have been lost with time. Story has preserved alot of it and is passing it on to us...and if I may add...at what I believe is a fair price. I say buy up with confidence.

This booklet is nicely put together; I do disagree on the one technique used for using the microwave for drying, and that's because the essential oils volatize out of the plant if you're looking to do this with medicinal or aromatic herbs. Other than that, a nice companion for your food dryer.

Enjoy these small learning/to do books !! One reviewer said they were not worth the $ that they could easily be printed out, well that said I love the fact that I can have a BOUND book to look things up and save all around my little home where others can find them and flip through ! They work for me :)

I have started putting up my own food in earnest now instead of just some canning, etc. Dehydration is a great way for some things to be stored and I am now using my dehydrator a lot more to put up my harvest and some of my meat stores as well. This book presents some good basic info on how to go about doing this.

This brochure provides a solid introduction to food drying basics (a quick guide kind of thing). May not be the best choice if you are "deep into food drying" but that is obviously not a purpose of this work. For those of us who are just starting & need it quick this is a great source of info.

Very low quality booklet. Most of the information is obsolete (still usable, though) or incomplete. I got better information from a free Google search than from this collection of paper.

Save your money and don't buy it.
