"John Seymour, self-sufficiency guru, offers a wealth of ideas to get you started." -- Sentinel<br /><br />"This book ... will appeal to those seeking simpler and environmentally responsible ways of living ..." --Library Journal
John Seymour is remembered as the "Father of Self-Sufficiency." Educated in England and Switzerland, his worldwide experience of husbandry and the benefits of rural life is unparalleled. After studying at an agricultural college, he worked on farms in England, and then spent some 10 years in Africa, where he managed a sheep and cattle farm and acted as a livestock officer for a veterinary department.
His most influential contribution was to live, teach, and promote self-sufficiency, first on five acres, and then on 62 acres, and then in Ireland, where the School of Self-Sufficiency that he established with Angela Ashe attracts new recruits in increasing numbers.
John Seymour has done it again, a very informative book from cover to cover. A must for anyone wanting to be self- sufficient. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Ray Casci
