He has never been afraid to get his hands dirty and is often referred to as "someone that can fix anything". He had owned a business, but was forced to close due to some health issues. He and his wife are looking forward to the building of their homestead and living there as soon as possible.

If you have been considering embracing a homesteading lifestyle this book is an excellent place to start. Written in a friendly, easy going manner of a good next door neighbor you can benefit from the sucesses and failures of someone who has been living a self sufficient lifestyle. Broken down into the different components of homesteading and giving you an overview in simple terms, you can decide if homesteading is path you might want to embark on. I connected to the author when he suggest that you visualize yourself on the land and think about how it "feel" to you. When searching for my current home it just felt like home and that helped me decide this was the place. The author goes on to distinguish between being self-reliant and a prepper. If you are self-reliant you are prepared but not all preppers may be self reliant. I especially enjoyed the section on scavenging, it is so near amd dear to my heart. This author surely has more books in him (I hope), he has much more to share. I thank him for taking the time to organize and write this book.

This book has many good ideas and stories, yet the author tends to go off on a separate idea in the middle of an explanation of another. All and all a good read.

This is a great introduction to topics that a homesteader will need to be skilled in to survive 'off grid'. Knowing this information a family could start planning, saving or even purchasing equipment/tools they will need. One way as described herein is to take what you already know and get started, mainly with food which almost anyone with the will can grow a simple garden. Then once you become more comfortable you can hone other skills which will expand your options and increase your savings/return on investment!

The layout is excellent, the material was outstanding and it is written very well. I would fully recommend that anyone considering homesteading read this book! The tool list alone pointed out at least 15-25 things that I didn't have on a list that I have been working on for over a year and just like Greg I have a list and every time I buy/acquire something I cross it off! Thank you Greg and good luck in your homesteading adventure!

I wanted to like this book. I could over look the repetition in the text, but when I got to the canning chapter and the author said you could EITHER use a water bath canner or a pressure canner - and didn't indicate that they aren't interchangeable, that you can poison yourself if you choose the wrong one - I stopped reading. Anyone who has spent even a little time researching the correct methods of canning knows this is a simple yet vital point. If the author got that wrong, what else is incorrect in the book?

Because of our age we live in a small rural Nebraska area but always loved having out own goats, chickens, and hogs when I was young. We canned apples from our orchard, vegetables from our garden and ate like kings in the winter time. Sewed most of our clothing and quilts for our family. Worked together on projects and learned a lot about cooperation, consideration for others, and how to manage money and time. Not like today's frantic lifestyle! I recommend it.
