Storey's Basic Country Skills: A Practical Guide to Self-Reliance

http://www.amazon.com/Storeys-Basic-Country-Skills-Self-Reliance/dp/1580172024/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321399147&sr=8-1

I had the good fortune of scoring this book from the Clearance shelf when Borders went out of business. The book is HUGE!

And it covers a whole lot of things that are a mystery to me, as I’ve never lived with certain systems/features in my home (like a cistern, etc.).

I was surprised by the sheer breadth of topics. There’s even a section on how to maintain your outdoor cat! Everything from gardening to plumbing,  cooking to caring for stables and tools.It’s all in here!
