About this item

Reminiscent in both spirit and design of the beloved Whole Earth Catalog, Country Wisdom & Know-How is an unprecedented collection of information on nearly 200 individual topics of country and self-sustained living. Compiled from the information in Storey Publishing's landmark series of "Country Wisdom Bulletins", this book is the most thorough and reliable volume of its kind. Organized by general topic including animals, cooking, crafts, gardening, health and well-being, and home, it is further broken down to cover dozens of specifics from "Building Chicken Coops" to "Making Cheese, Butter, and Yogurt" to "Improving Your Soil" to "Restoring Hardwood Floors". Nearly 1,000 black-and-white illustrations and photographs run throughout and fascinating projects and trusted advice crowd every page.

I like how-to books because they are interesting to read. If you are the same; you will probably like this book. This book has a lot of information on all sorts of different subjects. I probably won't use most of it, but its good knowledge and you never know. This book is definately geared towards country living and being self-sufficient. Subjects include making a still, raising livestock, chicken coups, baking, gardens, maple syrup, etc. I bought it for my wife because we were interested in getting a few chickens and goats and I thought it would be an interesting place to start.
