From tips on mulching your garden to planting in eggshells, all natural tinted lip gloss to beer hair rinse, Georgia shows us how to play with the boys without losing sense of yourself as a girl. From how to find due north without a compass to how to start a fire without matches, the book offers really practical survival skills in an easy-to-understand (and follow through with) manner. First aid kit in an altoids tin anyone?
As for recipes...if pine needle tea isn't really your thing, how about some homemade maraschino cherries or DIY vanilla extract? Or what about a watermelon keg? After all, surviving an apocalypse isn't really just about surviving, it's about surviving and still being able to enjoy some frills in life. Georgia offers a book jam packed with all kinds of information for being more self-sufficient. Buying less and making more.
One of the best 'homesteading' books I've read. And calling it that is kind of a disservice because it's a survival guide/homesteading manual rolled into one. Georgia mentions her great aunt and grandmother in various places throughout the book and credits them with her sense of what's important in life - which is getting back to the basics, but putting a modern twist on them. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be just a bit more self-sufficient.
