“The Encyclopedia of Country Living” by Carla Emery is a monster of a book, at 950 pages. In its 10th edition, this book is the go-to source for Homesteaders. Farmers/Ranchers could also learn a thing or two from this book. The amount of topics covered are incredible, and if your living in the country I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
