Getting more self-sufficient
I love this book for its wealth of tips on becoming more self sufficient: buying land (what to look for) and building on it, growing your own fruits, vegetables, livestock. It's got chapters on how to create your own goods, like bread, for instance, and pickles and fabric dyes and braided rugs and nails and on and on. Every chapter has sources for more detailed information. And there's an index. Maybe I'm not going to build my own house this year (there's many sensible tips for when I'm ready,) but I am going to preserve some vegetables, and make some furniture. There's a satisfaction in that I can't get any other way. This book inflames my imagination and inspires my creativity. I do not have to settle for what's in the shops.
