The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 50th Anniversary Edition

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.

The Encyclopedia of Country Living is the original manual of basic skills and country wisdom for living on the land—whether it’s a farm or homestead, suburb or city. Continually updated since its inception in 1969, the 50th Anniversary Edition is complete with updated resource and contact information.

From craft culture to survivalists, preppers, homesteaders, 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 to modern life.

The knowledge you need to survive and thrive off the grid is at your fingertips in The Encyclopedia of Country Living, the best-selling resource for the homesteading movement. With its origins in the back-to-the-land effort of the late 1960s, Carla Emery’s landmark book has grown into a comprehensive guide to building your sustainable country escape haven, while lowering your carbon footprint in the process.

The 50th anniversary edition offers up-to-date and detailed information on the fundamentals of topics like homegrown food; raising chickens, goats, and pigs; beekeeping; food preservation; mail-order supply sourcing; foraging; and much, much more (even how to deliver a baby)—everything you need to lead a self-sufficient lifestyle in the 21st century.

Basic, thorough, and reliable, this book deserves a place in urban and rural homes alike.1 Oddments2 Introduction to Plants3 Grasses, Grains & Canes4 Garden Vegetables5 Herbs & Flavorings6 Tree, Vine, Bush & Bramble7 Food Preservation8 Introduction to Animals9 Poultry10 Goats, Cows & Home Dairying11 Bee, Rabbit, Sheep & Pig12 Appendix
