The book that got me going in a beautiful direction

Read it in 1970. Invaluable information for anyone, especially if you are going back to nature. This book is heartwarming and hilarious at the same time. I must order yet another one because people keep borrowing my copy and hiding it so I cant get it back. LOL. Thank you Carla!
