EO(s) didn't turn out very tasty. I will try again tonight. For now, a book review.
A rep for Skyhorse publishing contacted me about doing a review. I had three to choose from and told them to surprise me.And so they did.
I rarely reference the first addition that was given to me years ago.And reading through the Third, I have come to the same conclusion. It's too general. But that is the issue with most homesteading books, generalities.
If you are looking for a project, the Back to Basics is a good place to start. It gives you a few of the details needed to complete a new project. It helps give you ideas on where to start and where you should finish. No trouble shooting (a few exceptions in the livestock area) you might find yourself in situations that you are not too sure to how to handle.
Back to Basics the Third Edition should be incorporated into your homesteading library. A good reference guide, but not a stand alone book. I give props to Abigail R Gehring for her research and staying in love with traditional skills over the years.
I am giving away a copy over at Girls gone Trashy.
