THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COUNTRY LIVING

10th Edition

With gas prices looming, unemployment rates skyrocketing, and the cost of milk, bread, and eggs rising drastically in the last year, a simpler life seems to be a thing of the past. Fortulnately, living in the modern world while living simply is a possibility made real thanks to CARLA EMERY'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COUNTRY LIVING (SASQUATCH BOOKS, JULY, 2008). For more than 30 years, people have relied on EMERY'S practical, step-by-step advice on basic self-sufficiency skills such as how to cultivate a garden, buy land, bake bread, raise farm animals, make sausage, milk a goat, grow herbs, churn butter, build a chicken coop, cook on a wood stove, and much, much more.

First written at the  height of the 1960s back-to-the land movement and continually revised, updated, and expanded since, "CARLA'S BOOK" has grown from a self-published, mimeographed document to an exhaustive reference of more that one million words, 2,000 recipes, and over  1,500 mail-order sources. This updated 10th edition includes expanded and updated mail-order information, including e-mail addresses and websites, while adding more of Emery's advise, reflections, and  anecdotes to ensure that this incredibly detailed, diverse book is as enjoyable as it is useful.

A few of the many topics on which Carla Emery shares her wisdom are: plans, grassed, grains, baking, garden vegetables.  herbs, food preservation animals and much more !

This book is also at the forefront and core of another huge trend: growing, cooking, and eating organic and natural foods. John and  I use this book for everything. We use it all year to make decisions for our garden. We garden 4 to 5 months a year but we study all year about it.I use the recipes in the book all  year. In the summer, I can, dry, pickle, bake, freeze, make soup and casseroles.

THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COUNTRY LIVING is a proven classic for those who want to enrich their lives.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: CARLA EMERY lived on a farm in Idaho for more thatn 30 years. A wife, mothe of seven, home-schooler, goat-keeper, writer, and country-living instructor, she died in 2005.
