This review is from: The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 10th Edition (Paperback)
About two years ago, I started planning my self-sufficient life. About one year ago, I dove into that life head first. During the planning stages, this book was one of the first I came across. I read a very large portion of it. I'd start out being fascinated by soap-making, then I was curious about how to butcher a pig, then, perhaps after having eaten some rice, I thought, "I wouldn't want to live without rice, I wonder if I could grow it in Montana?" This is the value of this book, some (a little or a lot) information on almost everything! Sure, I then decided I needed more information or ideas on some topics and so I bought or checked out more specific volumes. This book, along with The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It and Notes from a country kitchen I highly recommend.

By the way, this lifestyle is tough! But, boy those homegrown potatoes are good. Hat's off to Carla Emery for doing it AND writing and updating a 900 page book about it over the course of 30+ years. Incredible.
