    This book covers absolutely everything, with detailed diagrams, from making bricks to slaughtering pigs , from building a windmill, to choosing and eating wild plants, milking goats, managing springs, arranging a workshop for maximum efficiencyI could go on This is an absolute bible for anyone seriously interested in doing it themselves Although I marked this as read, I ll be reading this for years It ll sit on the shelf alongside my very battered, very loved, How to Cook Everything.

    Beautiful Hardcover.Loved the contents, but even for its size, I wish it went even deeper on the details of everything Probably this is only due to me being content facts numbers thirsty and if it was like that it would probably bore other people I love the images and drawings too, it sure shows the love we feel for the country.

    When I was in England over the summer, I stayed at my friend Jamie s house, which was a little cottage in the New Forest I admired his vegetable plot, and he showed me this book, and we talked about building a dry toilet, and he demonstrated a tool that he d made himself that was a replica of a tool that they used in the Middle Ages and that you can use to make chair legs and bedposts Jamie is great.

    The Bible of self sufficiency It goes in depth about everything you want to know about the subject Yes, it s a little old, it was written in the 70s But it s better, I think, to see how things were done when we were slightly less dependent on non renewable resources.As far as I know, there is no other book on the subject that does a better job than this one It s a shame though that there is such an extensive chapter on slaughter I feel like self sufficiency caneasily rely on legumes a The Bible of self sufficiency It goes in depth about everything you want to know about the subject Yes, it s a little old, it was written in the 70s But it s better, I think, to see how things were done when we were slightly less dependent on non renewable resources.As far as I know, there is no other book on the subject that does a better job than this one It s a shame though that there is such an extensive chapter on slaughter I feel like self sufficiency caneasily rely on legumes and nuts as a protein source

    Awesome reference It got a bit bogged down in the gardening section for those of us not gardening in UK soil climate prevalent pest conditions, but in general, Seymour has some impressive skills at succinctly summarizing what you need to know to get started in disciplines that have few remaining craftsmen to apprentice with and might take decades to fully master.
