Highly recommended.

by Linda V on Nov 20, 2014

This book not only teaches long forgotten skills but also reinforces abilities you may already have. We enjoyed this book so much that we're giving it as a gift to our grown children.


Very informative

by Laura on May 11, 2012

This book has so much information! It will be very helpful for anyone trying to get back to basics. It is a good reference manual for basic living skills. I find something new every time I pick it up.


Great reference book

by Rabbit99 on Feb 3, 2011

Reader's Digest books have long been a favorite of mine for reference books. Gave this one to my son; sort of like a Mother Earth reference book on how to built your own log dwelling to raising goats.


Great Book

I had this book long ago, and it got damaged in water so this is a replacement. I have learned so much from this book, its something my husband and I read and learn to do different things together! Would highly recommend!


Oldie but goodie!

by Fifty on Apr 29, 2010

This book has everything. A dozen or more books rolled into one, from stain removal to building your own house. The housewife/handyman's encyclopedia for everything under the sun. Easy to interpret graphica and even a 'man' can follow the instructions. A must have in every home.
