Buy it now and study it. It's that simple. Even if there are better ways or alternatives, Gene Logsdon is giving you a heck of head start. Not everyone needs this book, I'm sure, although it wouldn't hurt anyone to read it and use it as a reference.

In my case, I no longer have my grandfather with me, and I am learning a lot on my own. This books is tremendously helpful, if just for the inspiration required to tackle projects and tasks. If you're lucky enough to have someone of the older generation with you, ask them questions and learn from them. Get this book anyway, as ask them for their opinions on what Gene suggests.

Definitely a good read and reference, and you will never see my copy up for sale.

I used to own this book and I loved it. I had recommended it and they borrowed it, then they let someone else borrow it etc. Well you get the picture. I never got the book back. I have been trying to find it ever since. I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting out on a farm, as well as those who have been farming. It shows you how to do everything from cooking on open fires and woodstoves to how to work you soil and everything inbetween. It is so packed full of information and how tos it would be useful for anyone.

This material more than met my expectations. It covers a myriad of topics and yet did not just gloss over a subject, leaving the reader wondering why, for no more information given, it was even included. For someone looking for information on the "old ways" of doing different tasks on the farm or homestead that are still useful and helpful, I heartily reccomend this book.

Easily the best book I've found about old skills. It's matter of fact, easy, and fun to read. And (in my opinion) best of all it is written for those of us who are not trying to be professionals, but just want to be able to fix stuff around the house. It's like a much more succinct and practical version of the foxfire books.

I found a copy at a garage sale, took it home to my husband.
In the process of moving, changing jobs, we had to once give up all our stuff, including this book.
Now that we want the self reliant country lifestyle on a 5-40 acre farm, we can't find another book like it in the world. And my husband won't settle for anything less. He's read other self reliant books, but ..."Nothing is like that Gene Logsdon
book you bought me"....he says.
A wealth of information. Good information on building fences, gates in unique and interesting ways. Much foregotten information, you will hardly find elsewhere.
