Sooo… this book received 5 stars on Amazon and I’m going to go ahead and order- here’s what the summary on Amazon says: (ummm… it had me at “making beer and wine”…)
The Self Sufficient Life and How to Live It is the only book that teaches all the skills needed to live independently in harmony with the land harnessing natural forms of energy, raising crops and keeping livestock, preserving foodstuffs, making beer and wine, basketry, carpentry, weaving, and much more. Our 2003 edition included 150 new full-color illustrations and a special section in which John Seymour, the father of the back to basics movement, explains the philosophy of self-sufficiency and its power to transform lives and create communities. More relevant than ever in our high-tech world, The Self Sufficient Life and How to Live It is the ultimate practical guide for realists and dreamers alike.
I would say this would definitely be tossed into my carry on to dooms day!!
Ummm… I feel like this would make for one interesting read and I think I’ll order just because I’m curious 😉 If I were ever “planning” to be deserted on an island.. I would have this book handy!!
… Because I’m sure it wouldn’t be long before anxiety and depression set in.. I would need a little something like this book!!

Well.. there’s my three…If you blog, link up and play along!! I’m excited to read these… If I had the option of a 4th book- I would throw in a novel from Elin Hilderbrand- I’m sure she could lift my spirits!!
