Self-sufficient living means different things to different people- a healthier life, a way to help protect the earth, a way to save money, or all of the above. For a few, it means going completely 'off the grid.' For many more, it means some combination of self-reliance in the areas of food, shelter, energy, clothing, and more. The Complete Idiot's Guide#65533; to Self-Sufficient Livingprovides a wide range of information that will help readers find their perfect degree of self reliance.

It provides all the basics including gardening, cooking from scratch, preserving food, beekeeping, raising livestock, keeping chickens, shelter, generating or supplementing energy, essential tools and equipment, and much more. There are even sections on foraging for wild foods, hunting, fishing, and trapping. This is the perfect introduction to self-sufficiency for those who are seriously considering a lifestyle change, as well as those who like to dream of it.
