The Ultimate Guide to Homesteading is a practical guide with nitty-gritty details on everything a homesteader can do, step-by-step with hundreds of color illustrations and pen and ink sketches.

You can do it! This book will show you how to:


Make your own bread?
Grow a garden all winter
Make a solar oven
Store food without electricity
Raise a water buffalo
Make fine linen from stinging nettle
Make your own shampoo
Deliver a baby


Yes, you, too, can be totally self-sufficient! This massive, full-color book answers all these questions and thousands more and includes checklists, diagrams, and instructions. All the information meets these criteria: It is something that anyone can do, without special training. It can be done with relatively few supplies or with stuff you can make yourself. It has been tried and tested-either by the author, the military, doctors, or other homesteaders.
