Back To Basics (HD)
4th Edition—Updated and Revised
Abigail R. Gehring
ISBN: 978-1-60239-233-5
456 pages.
$ 27.95
Anyone who wants to learn basic living skills and adapt them for a better life in the twenty-first century need look no further than this eminently useful, full-color guide. Escape to an era before power saws and fast food restaurants and rediscover the pleasures and challenges of a healthier, greener, and more self-sufficient lifestyle. Back to Basics will help you dye your own wool with plant pigments, graft trees, raise chickens, craft a hutch table with hand tools, make treats such as blueberry peach jam and cheddar cheese and instructions on how to build a log cabin or an adobe brick homestead. Even if you live in a city apartment you will find your imagination sparked. This may be the most thorough book on voluntary simplicity available.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
