Homesteading in the 21st century; how one family created a more sustainable, self-sufficient, and satisfying life.
Drawing on decades of experience, Nash and Waterman present this practical guide to homesteading, providing advice on creating and sustaining a home built, self-sustaining lifestyle in the modern age. The work is divided into three sections covering the building of the homestead, gardens and orchards, and animals, each including color illustrations, important charts and tables and interesting sidebars on specific technologies or processes. The work includes technical drawings for homestead structures and tools throughout. Nash is a carpenter and handyman and Waterman is a former midwife and doctor. (Annotation ©2011 Book News Inc.
