Editorial Reviews

Think of this book as a two-part structure. The first part describes the philosophy, urgency, and strategies of self-sufficiency. The second lays out specifics about feeding yourself; raising plants, bees and animals; heating and lighting alternatives; and much more. The emphasis throughout is on economy and eco-friendly ways.
