Homesteaders and preppers everywhere rejoice!
Now for the first time in print here is an eclectic collection and anthology of practical and inspirational writing from the classic small farm and homesteading blog, GRANNY MILLER.
This book is the is the black & white photo edition, and is the first volume in the series, "Old-Time Skills For A New Generation".
Written from a traditional agrarian point of view, this volume examines the mindset, outlook and attitudes necessary to successfully pursue a long-term life of homesteading and self-reliance.Illustrated with black & white images from life, the non-electric and off-grid topics include: home heating with wood and coal; oil lamps; basic cook stove advice and operation; and an extensive and indispensable treadle sewing machine chapter.
Many of the popular notions of contemporary preparedness, prepping and the modern survivalist movement are challenged and assessed in this book.
Insights and advice regarding meat rabbits, chamber pots and general homestead management and philosophy are discussed by way of questions from readers.
Grounded in old-time common sense, Katherine Grossman shares a depth of experience that sets this book apart from many other books in the genre.A born contrarian, her written work is passionately original and has always been peppered with plenty of strong opinion. This little book is certainly no exception.
It is an absolute must read for anyone exploring the path to a life of greater self-reliance or intentional living.
