What’s the Name of the 1970s Books About Homesteading?

Tags: books, homesteading

What was the set of books written in the late 1970s about living off the land, do it yourself, gardening, canning, etc.?

I think you are referring to the Foxfire books, a collection of traditional folk culture and crafts of the Southern Appalachians that are still practiced today.

For more information and inspiration on traditional homesteading crafts and skills, check out these books on our shopping site. The Good Life, The Encyclopedia of Country Living, The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It, Country Wisdom and Know How, A Handmade Life and Made from Scratch.
