A lot of persons wonder what homesteading is and how it fits into our modern society. In a nutshell it is a return to being self sufficient, living off the land if you will. As more and more individuals are trying to find ways to save money they are looking at ways to grow what they can. A lot may find it surprising to know that having a boxed garden or a potted garden is an urban way to homestead.
This book provides all the information that one could ever want to know on a basic level about homesteading and how to make the transition to becoming more self sufficient. What many individuals fail to realize is that there are individuals that never stopped practicing this way of life and that some are even totally "off the grid" as they produce everything that they need.
It makes for an interesting read and at the end of it all you will start to wonder why you were not doing it in the first place. Everything is presented in a manner that is extremely to understand and in the long run will turn out to be a rather viable solution for any household looking to save.
Reads like someone's poorly written term paper ... you know, the kind that is full of "fluff" because the writer hadn't done their homework and didn't have much to say, but had to hand SOMETHING in. Pass this one by; I wish I had.
