COUNTRY WISDOM & KNOW-HOW
Author: Editors of Storey Books
Reminiscent in both spirit and design of the beloved Whole Earth Catalog, Country Wisdom & Know-How is an unprecedented collection of information on nearly 200 individual topics of country and self-sustainable living.
Compiled from the information in Storey Publishing's landmark series of "Country Wisdom Bulletins," this book is the most thorough and reliable volume of its kind.
Organized by general topic (including animals, cooking, crafts, gardening, home, and health and well-being), it is further broken down to cover dozens of specifics (from "Building Chicken Coops" to "Making Cheese, Butter, and Yogurt" to "Improving Your Soil" to "Restoring Hardwood Floors").
Nearly 1,000 black-and-white illustrations and photographs run throughout, and fascinating projects and trusted advice crowd every page.
About three pounds of book, with tiny print. Practical things, like how to build a bird house for the birds in my particular garden. What those birds eat, and need for habitat. Very detailed and complete.
This a a very large volume with lots of great data...any homesteader will enjoy.
