Self-reliance and sustainability in the 21st century.
Over the years, many books with valuable information for homesteading wannabes have gone out of print. This is unfortunate, as most of the authors wrote from personal experience at a time when self-sufficiency was the norm.
Edmund Morris' classic “Ten Acres Enough: Small-Farm Self-Sufficiency Through High-Quality Produce, A Back-to-the-Land Adventure” from 1864.
Margaret Leatherbarrow's fascinating “Gold in the Grass: Rags to Riches Through Soil Reclamation and Sustainable Farming,” from 1954.
You will find a wealth of homesteading and self-sufficiency information from Plamondon’s reprints as well as from his books on raising pastured poultry.
