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!
I borrow it all the time from the library. When I can fit it into my budget, I am going to buy a copy. Great Book.
This book has great information about everything about homesteading or country living.
