The Original Manual for Living off the Land & Doing It Yourself



This is an update of the #1 best-selling title on the Sasquatch Books list with an incredible backlist rate of sale that shows this book’s ability to constantly appeal to new audiences.

A homesteading classic for more than 50 years, this is the essential book of basic skills and country wisdom for living off the land, being prepared, and doing it yourself. Keep your family healthy, safe, and independent--no matter what's going on in the world.

From homesteaders to urban farmers, and everyone in between, there is a desire for a simpler way of life: a healthier, greener, more self-sustaining, and holistic approach that allows you to survive and thrive—even in uncertain times.
