This book serves as your first and foremost guide to homesteading.
Homesteading is not just a new type of gardening or some fancy way of living that's currently in vogue. It is one of the most ancient methods practiced by several civilizations, as you have understood by now, and the closest way to living in harmony with nature.
The homesteading way of life was very common in the past, and people have been consistently growing fruits and vegetables in their backyards from time immemorial. The concept of raising chickens in a backyard pen is not uncommon either. While the ideas of homesteading and self-sufficiency might not be new, the ways in which homesteading is practiced have certainly undergone drastic changes.
Homesteading is a way of life and a choice you make. I understand any change comes with resistance and suspicion, especially when it requires your precious time and energy on a day-to-day basis. But I assure you the results are far reaching, and you will see the amazing results it brings to you and your family in terms of superior quality of health and thus life.
Hence, take this book only as a beginner's guide, and keep continuing your journey into homesteading and organic living with several other books and blogs. I suggest joining your local organic gardening club to share ideas and get the encouragement to continue this journey.
