  • Review

    I feel that this book was written for the novice homesteader.  The information guides the reader to be able to make informed decisions based on facts, without overwhelming them.

    The book's four main sections are The Family Garden, The Country Kitchen, Country Crafts, and The Barnyard.  These sections are broken into sub-sections that encompass what you need to know, in a logical manner.  These sections cover gardening, harvest, food preservation, baking, seasonal crafts, and farm animals and more.  

    Every section is complete, offering all the guidance the reader needs to succeed in that area of self-sufficiency.

    Although I feel this is a great book for homesteaders, I think the seasoned homesteader would want more in-depth information.  They would have already learned what this handbook offers.

    If I were a new homesteader, this is definitely a book I would own!
