For twenty years people have relied on these hundreds of recipes, instructions, and morsels of invaluable practical advice on all aspects of growing and preparing food. This definitive classic on food, gardening, and self-sufficient living is a complete resource for living off the land with over 800 pages of collected wisdom from country maven, Carla Emery--how to cultivate a garden, buy land, bake bread, raise farm animals, make sausage, milk a goat, grow herbs, churn butter, catch a pig, make soap, work with bees and more. Encyclopedia of Country Living is so basic, so thorough, so reliable, it deserves a place in every home--whether in the country, the city, or somewhere in between.Review:
Carla Emery is certifiably one of the craziest, warmest, (sometimes unintentionally) funniest, wisest, most lovable, and idealistic zanies now walking the face of the earth and we think this old world would be a lot better off if we had a few more people like her. -- Mother Earth News
Carla Emery started this ambitious reference project in 1969 as a complete guide to family food production and now, in its ninth edition, it has grown into an all-encompassing encyclopedia spanning everything from buying land to family farming to raising livestock to barn building to beekeeping to bread baking to making your own yogurt, plus a generous helping of suppliers, catalogers, books and magazines, and organizations. Hundreds of unique down-home recipes fill these pages, along with advice and instructions on all manner of food growing and preparation and a wealth of folk wisdom collected over the years from homesteaders that Carla has met or corresponded with. This book is an absolute gold mine of how-to, where-to information, whether you want to head for the hills or you just want to learn to live more self-sufficiently. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Tara Springer
If you're dreaming about moving "back to the land" someday, or if you're already there and want to live more self-sufficiently (wherever you may be) you'll want a copy of the ninth edition of The Encyclopedia of Country Living...We think you're pretty swell, Carla. -- Organic Gardening
No library is complete without this one-of-a-kind encyclopedia. There isn't a more complete source of step-by-step information about food production, from the garden or barnyard, all the way to the kitchen table. Filled with hundreds of recipes , detailed instructions, and wisdom gleaned from a multitude of readers, The Encyclopedia of Country Living is so basic, thorough, and reliable it deserves a place in every country life collection. With a wealth of practical information, anecdotes, recipes, and personal advice, readers will quickly become devoted fans of growing and processing every kind of food! -- Midwest Book Review
