Synopsis:
Everything you ever wanted to know about self-reliance, preparedness, survival, & sustainable homesteading in one simple guide. 200 Color & 200 B&W Illus.; 7x10 inches, 608 pgs.

More Information:
Can you make your own bread (sans bread machine)? Grow a garden all winter? What can you use instead of toilet paper? What if the power went out for a month? What if the grocery store closed? Can you make a solar oven? Store food without electricity? Raise a water buffalo? Make fine linen from stinging nettle? Make your own shampoo? Deliver a baby? Is it possible to be totally self-sufficient? This massive, full-color book answers all these questions & thousands more & includes checklists, diagrams, & instructions on how to buy a sheep.

All of the information included meets these criteria: It is something that anyone can do, without special training. It can be done with relatively few supplies or with stuff you can make yourself. It has been tried & tested?either by the author, the military, doctors, or other homesteaders. The Ultimate Guide to Homesteading is not a storybook or a cookbook. It is a practical guide with nitty-gritty details on everything a homesteader can do, step-by-step with hundreds of color illustrations & pen & ink sketches. You can do it! This book can help.
