To Self-Sufficient Living


Live a simpler, less dependent lifestyle
—without feeling deprived



By Jerome D. Belanger



The Complete Idiot's Guide®<br>To Self-Sufficient Living by Jerome D. Belanger


Self-sufficient living can mean a healthier life, a way to protect the earth, or a way to save money. This guide helps readers find their perfect degree of self-reliance in the areas of food, shelter, energy, clothing, and more. For both the urban and rural dweller, it covers gardening, cooking from scratch, preserving food, raising livestock, keeping chickens, generating or supplementing energy, essential tools and equipment, foraging for wild foods, hunting, fishing, and trapping.

  • Saving money in today’s economy and self-sufficiency go hand-in-hand

  • For the growing number of eco-friends considering self-sufficiency

  • Existing books focus on either rural or urban self-sufficiency, but this covers both
