Full description for The Encyclopedia of Country Living

  • Carla Emery started writing "The Encyclopedia of Country Living" in 1969 during the back-to-the-land movement of that time. She continued to add content and refine the information over the years and the book went from a self-published mimeographed document to a book of 928 pages. This 40th Anniversary Edition reflects the most up-to-date resource information and the most personal version of the book that became Carla Emery's life work. It is the original manual of basic country skills that have proved essential and necessary for people living in the country, the city and everywhere in between. The practical advice in this exhaustive reference tool includes how to cultivate a garden, buy land, bake bread, raise farm animals, milk a goat, grow herbs, churn butter, cook on a wood stove, over 2000 recipes and much, much more.
