The perfect "back-to-the-land" guide for urbanites. Full of practical information, as well as inspiring stories from people already living the urban homestead life, this is a lesson in learning to live more ecologically in the city. The book embraces the core concepts of localization (providing our basic needs close to where we live), self-reliance (re-learning that food comes from the ground, not the grocery store), and sustainability (giving back at least as much as we take). Concise how-to information that can be immediately set into practice, from making solar cookers to growing a tomato garden in a barrel to raising chickens in small spaces to maintaining mental serenity in the fast-paced city environment. Full of beautiful full-color photographs and illustrations, and plenty of step-by-step instructions, this is a must-have handbook for city folk with a passion for the simple life.
