Country Wisdom really deserves like 30 stars– one for every book included. (And for this reason, it should be more expensive than it is, really).
Okay, so I'm exaggerating a bit. But not much. There is SO much information here, you'l never get to it all. It's a country cook book, a book on bee keeping, a DIY book house/cabin construction, vegetable gardening, raising fowl, keeping/ training pets, preparing medicinal herbs, basket weaving, soap making, etc. etc. etc. The list is endless.
As I understand it, this is basically the compilation of hundreds of books/newsletters published as a series by some hippy-farmers back in the 1970s. But don't be turned off by this, the knowledge is timeless and not dated in the least.
It's printed in newsprint in an oversized format (like a Sunday paper), with loads of visual diagrams and written with very clear, easy too read - and often humorous - instructions.
Think 'Cook's Illustrated', but for homesteading.
Highly recommended if you're an a beginner, or even expert, homesteader. Will definitely be ordering more as gifts around Christmas time.
