5.0 out of 5 stars Carla Emery was a pioneer woman!, May 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 10th Edition (Paperback)
The first Encyclopedia of Country Living I purchased was in 2003. My husband and I looked to it for guidance when we raised chickens and culled roosters. We learned how to shear sheep and get through lambing without a hitch. We learned about docking tails and tagging ears, as well as gained knowlege about animal diseases, worming, and proper animal diets. The book provided canning expertise, many fabulous recipes, tanning rabbit hides, making soap, etc. Our book has been splattered on, creased, torn, and extremely worn from all the use. How one woman could have known so much is beyond me. Yet we are thrilled and enriched to have her book even though she is now gone from this world. I purchased three more books--2008 edition and I give these to family and friends who want an extensive knowledge about living in rural areas. But this book is also essential for urban dwellers so they can learn about herbs, canning, alternatives to conventional laundry detergents, ridding your homes of bugs, floral arrangements, making candles, dealing with power outages, drying foods, and countless more tidbits that will help anyone. I love this book and more than that, I appreciate this book!
