  12. Country Living

    ENCYCLOPEDIA COUNTRY LIVING

    Updated 10th edition By Carla Emery This is a remarkable book in many ways. Its sheer size is impressive, an 8 1/2 x 11 inch format with 885 pages. The fact that it is the effort of a single author is even more noteworthy, especially when you learn that Carla Emery spent 30 years working on this book, while at the same time, homesteading and raising seven children! She has accumulated the information for at least a dozen books in one volume. We were continually amazed at the breadth of information included here. In chapters on vegetables, herbs, and fruits, there were far more varieties mentioned than in entire books we carry on those subjects (124 herbs, for instance!). There is a very complete chapter on raising a wide variety of grasses, grains, and canes that include: amaranth, millet, quinoa, rice, sorghum (with broom-making directions) sugar cane, wheat and much more. There are also extensive sections on farm animals: poultry, goats, cows, home dairying, bees, rabbits, sheep and pigs. Favorite recipes and further resources are scattered throughout. In a time of too many slick publications, Carla Emery's sincerity is truly refreshing. This expanded updated edition includes mail order source information with email and website addresses. It also includes more of Emery's personal advice, reflections and antidotes. Softcover 885 pp? Learn More
