Anneli Carter-Sundqvist, the co-owner of Deer Isle Hostel, recently released her new book A Homesteader's Year on Deer Isle. This collection of blog posts originally published on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS website takes readers through a whole year of living on an off-the-grid homestead.

Carter-Sundqvist and her husband, Dennis, grow a year's supply of food, raise pigs and chickens, and produce their own building materials, garden amendments and energy. Here, she recounts the day-to-day stories about digging out new garden space, swimming in the pond, chasing the pigs and preserving 150 heads of cabbage. She also shares her political and philosophical reasons for why, in the 21st century, homesteading and living off the land is not just something from the past but rather a sensible, dignifying and viable option for the future.

PRACTICAL PROJECTS FOR SELF-SUFFICIENCY

Chris Peterson
Paperback

Price: $19.99

Have you ever wanted to build your own chicken coop, cider press or herb-drying rack? How about a clever two-bin composter, horse-blanket washing machine or genuine Langstroth beehive? In Practical Projects for Self-Sufficiency, you'll find these projects and a couple dozen more to help you develop and grow your self-reliant lifestyle. Most self-sufficiency books give you pages of words and a couple of small drawings for an explanation, but this book shows you exactly how to do things, employing beautiful photos and complete plans. The projects are organized into four categories: Food Prep & Preservation, Homestead, Garden and Animals. Among the projects are a simple brooder box for chicks, a jumbo cold frame, a basic loom, a large-capacity soil sifter, fencing, trellises and even a solar oven. So, whether you're a longtime do-it-yourselfer looking to complete your skill set or a newcomer taking your first step toward sustainability, Practical Projects for Self-Sufficiency is the book to get you there.
