Review:

Granted, if you live in the city and have no land or tools, the primary use of this charming reproduction of an 1884 classic self-help book for farmers and homesteaders will be entertainment and fantasy. But if you are living in the country or would like to, the basic, straightforward wisdom in Farm Conveniences will serve the modern homesteader just as well as those of the last century. A collection of the best ideas garnered from farmers of the time on shed-building, trapping, constructing fences and gates, and making carts, a log boat, and other essential implements for rural agriculture, it also includes advice on land management to prevent erosion, manure use, and how to build shelters of many kinds for livestock and people. The ideas were sound, practical, and well tested then and are surprisingly useful even today for readers with an eye toward self-sufficiency and homegrown agriculture. --Mark A. Hetts

From the Back Cover:

This reprint of an 1884 classic retains remarkable usefulness for today's homesteader or country resident interested in moving toward self-sufficiency on a property. The best ideas of the time, including plans on shed-building, trapping, constructing fences and gates, and making carts, a log boat, and other essential implements for rural agriculture, it also includes advice on land management to prevent erosion, manure use, and how to build shelters of many kinds for livestock and people.
