I really enjoy dipping into this book. You need to be prepared that it isn't about a showplace country house but has a lot of really interesting and basic ways to live a more simple life. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who has a real interest in reducing the toll on the earth and is prepared to let go of some of life's luxuries.

I had the original book that was given to me by my mother... It had travelled a long way and been my companion for many years, through thick and thin. sadly it was on its last legs, though loved. This was my replacement. more upto date and still a classic to keep you grounded and fascinated as well as informed about everything to do with country living. Carla Emery's great legacy to us all.

lovely to read, although for any depth in most of these subjects the reader is directed to another book they can buy.

It's still a really useful and beautiful personal account of country life in the USA. As a country girl from Scotland, its very interesting to read about how other people live: so different and yet so familiar.

So full of how to do all those things that constitute daily life on a farm. Definitely one of the best resource books for anyone wanting to escape to the country and have a smallholding. I really do recommend this book.
