5.0 out of 5 stars My personal favourite, 16 Aug. 2005
This review is from: The New Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency: The classic guide for realists and dreamers (Hardcover)
My mum bought me a plethora of books based on Amazon recommendations 3 years ago, including this one.

It is one of the most wonderful factual books that I have ever read, with a wealth of practical information for smallholders and a pithy, clear written style - a rarity in this type of book.

True, it isn't in depth about all aspects of smallholding, but that's not what it's there for - it provides a really good overview.

Check out the handy tips in the dairy and smallholding layout sections and the chapters detailing crop storage and preservation. There are even details on the working horse, fencing your land and milling grain to keep the aspiring smallholder on track.

But, even if you never get your bit of land, this book will still give you years of enjoyment and inspiration, as it has to me.
