Country Women: A Handbook for the New Farmer


An incredibly thorough guide to country living for the independent woman, with a serious yet authoritative tone. Covering a broad range of topics – from selecting the right plot of land and finding water, to preparing soil for planting and raising animals for food and fiber.

Going into great enough detail to stand alone as a resource for many subjects, this book is more than just a collection of rural fetishism, rather serving as a first step and frequent reference for anyone serious about homesteading and living beyond corporate dependance and urbanism.

Soft cover with black and white illustrations and photographs throughout.

Edition: 1976.

Condition: Overall wonderfully well-kept, with two small markings on the front cover.
