As consumers become ever more eco-conscious, many people nurture a dream of a 'self-sufficient' lifestyle. "The Self-Sufficiency Handbook" is an introduction to the possibilities and methods involved in setting up the different aspects of a greener way of living. Authors Alan and Gill Bridgewater recently moved to a smallholding, so they are well equipped to answer all the fundamental questions that anyone considering a similar lifestyle shift might ask. Subjects covered in the book include: the self-sufficient house, the organic food garden, animal husbandry and the pantry. The book runs the full ecological gamut, from geothermal heating through to crop rotation and making your own soap. It emphasises the positive aspects of adapting to a self-sufficient lifestyle, such as cutting living costs and eating well, and the sheer fun of rolling your sleeves up to get things going. Packed with informative illustrations and diagrams, and a wealth of useful advice, "The Self-Sufficiency Handbook" is the perfect guide for the increasing number of people who are keen to join the green revolution.
