Now revised and fully updated, this enduring classic is still the key reference to living off the land. Packed with practical information, tried-and-tested tips and invaluable nuggets of advice, Seymour's visionary handbook explains how to reap the harvest, respect the land, stay healthy and waste nothing.
Now with 150 new artworks and with the classic illustrations redrawn in full colour, this edition features new material on ethical living, GM plants, creating an urban garden, generating power from wind, water and the sun, and guidelines on making the break and changing your life. There is also information on everything from clearing land, planting and harvesting to feeding, clothing and sheltering yourself.
An index and list of useful websites and addresses makes this an invaluable reference for anyone interested in pursuing the dream of self-sufficiency.
