John Seymour has inspired thousands to make more responsible, enriching, and eco-friendly choices with his advice on living sustainably. The Self-sufficient Life and How to Live It offers step-by-step instructions on everything from chopping trees to harnessing solar power; from growing your own vegetables and fruit, and preserving and pickling your harvest, to baking bread, brewing beer, and making cheese. Seymour shows you how to live off the land, running your own smallholding or homestead, keeping chickens, and raising (and butchering) livestock.
While we are not all able to move to the countryside, we can appreciate the importance of Seymour's message, as he shows us the value of living within our means and making the most of what we have on hand, often using skills that have been handed down through generations.
With refreshed, retro-style illustrations, this new edition of Seymour's classic title is a balm for anyone who has ever sought solace away from the madness of modern life.
