Very informative and helpful resource! Everything you need to know. If you can only afford one book on living in the country, this is the one you need. The author has done a fine job. Well worth the price.

I have a copy of the very first edition Carla published, and a copy of the fifth edition as well. I plan on obtaining the latest edition soon, but I can tell anyone from my experiences with Carla's book that she outdid herself between the 2 that I have, and I'm excited to see what improvements have been made in this new edition! Carla is a wonderful author who writes from her heart. She tempers the difficult passages with humor, simplifies the technical passages with grade-school language so anyone can understand, and makes the book worth reading from cover to cover, literally. The best part about this book is how it is organized by subject matter, and then it's easier to find the answers to your questions more quickly than a librarian can. If you're looking for a Bible on the subject of Country Living and Survival, Carla Emery's Encyclopedia of Country Living is the choice with which you will not go wrong. I have never regretted my investment for one single day in 35 years!
