The Self Reliant Homestead


Product Description

A Book of Country Skills

Charles A. Sanders

A hands-on text for real country living, THE SELF-RELIANT HOMESTEAD contains detailed advice on everything from selecting a piece of land to raising livestock, from making wine from home-grown fruits to making fences strong and durable. Here is abundant advice from a real country homesteader, a book equally valuable for lifelong farm-dwellers or for the new-to-the-country city folks looking to set down roots.

Charles A. Sanders, a conservation officer with the Indiana Dept of Conservation, lives with his family on forty rugged acres in Martin County, Indiana where he raises beef cattle, grows hay, tends a large vegetable garden and grows fruit trees.
