Description:

These days people are cutting back on consumerism and trying to simplify their lives. Books like Off the Grid, The Encyclopedia of Country Living, and It's All Too Much have found an audience among Americans who are realizing that the "new way" isn't always best, and that we have a lot to learn from previous generations. The movement goes beyond a desire to protect the environment and practice green living; it's about rediscovering simple survival skills that, in an earlier time, were known and practiced by almost everyone. The New American Homestead will present readers with a wealth of information about homesteading (basically, "a lifestyle of simple, agrarian self-sufficiency"), from raising chickens, bees, and other animals to earth-friendly gardening practices to canning, preserving, home brewing, and cheese making. The book does not assume that the reader has a sizable parcel of land in the country, either; author John Tullock's techniques can be put to use in virtually any space, even a small urban plot.
