Skyhorse Publishing | May 25, 2011 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Back to Basics Handbook: A Guide to Buying and Working Land, Raising Livestock, Enjoying Your Harvest, Household Skills and C is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Anyone who wants to learn basic living skills-the kind employed by our forefathers-and adapt them for a better life in the twenty-first century need look no further than this eminently useful, full-color guide. With hundreds of projects, step-by-step sequences, photographs, charts, and illustrations, The Back to Basics Handbook will help you dye your own wool with plant pigments, graft trees, raise chickens, craft a hutch table with hand tools, and make treats such as blueberry peach jam and cheddar cheese. The truly ambitious will find instructions on how to build a log cabin or an adobe brick homestead.

More than just practical advice, this is also a book for dreamers- even if you live in a city apartment you will find your imagination sparked, and there’s no reason why you can’t, for example, make a loom and weave a rag rug. Complete with tips for old-fashioned fun (square dancing calls, homemade toys, and kayaking tips), this is the ultimate concise guide to voluntary simplicity.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great source for the new land owner! This book is perfect for anyone starting out. It covers a wide range of "need to know" information when breaking land, building fences and raising animals. There is also a section on natural energy sources, which includes the sun, wind and water. It also has an extensive section on gardening, which covers everything from apple trees to vertical gardens. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering "going back to basics" and living a simpler way of life. Diane Ziomek Independent Author/Hobby Farmer
