About The Book

The Ultimate Guide to Homesteading is a practical guide with nitty-gritty details on everything a homesteader can do, step-by-step with hundreds of color illustrations and pen and ink sketches.

You can do it! This book will show you how to:

  • Make your own bread?
  • Grow a garden all winter
  • Make a solar oven
  • Store food without electricity
  • Raise a water buffalo
  • Make fine linen from stinging nettle
  • Make your own shampoo
  • Deliver a baby

Yes, you, too, can be totally self-sufficient! This massive, full-color book answers all these questions and thousands more and includes checklists, diagrams, and instructions. All the information meets these criteria: It is something that anyone can do, without special training. It can be done with relatively few supplies or with stuff you can make yourself. It has been tried and tested—either by the author, the military, doctors, or other homesteaders.
