The Ultimate guide this is not. if you are looking for a few paragraphs on a lot of subjects then this may be your book. If you are looking for actual information, descriptions, diagrams then you need to get Storey's Basic Skills or Country Wisdom and Know How, or John Seymour's book. I found this book to be hugely disappointing and could have written most of blurbs on most of the subjects myself. There is not much depth on any one subject the ones that seemed to get the most print were the sections on Horses, goats and sheep, and homeschooling. Really home schooling? I mean if I wanted a book on the benefits of homeschooling (which I am not against in anyway) she spent 2 pages telling me about several theories of education when I would rather her have taken a few more pages and told about topbar beehives or how to build a rainbarrel collection system, or maybe talked about aquaponics well I digress, I did appreciate the description of how to make lye. If you are going to only buy 1 or 10 books on homesteading, this could be number 11.

i have just started to read this book, and almost started to highlight certain things, then realized it's a library book, so i am needing to outright buy a copy, so i CAN highlight certain items in it! great, great info for hurricane season, and also for winter in the northern states! the only problem, which is very minute, is, the editor must have been a tad sleepy, but other than that, this is a five star book!
