Description for Sales People

NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK! The Self-Sufficiency series presents single-volume explorations of everything from Home Brewing to Natural Home Remedies to Beekeeping and Preserving . Each book is illustrated with full-color drawings and takes the reader step-by-step through each skill in clear language that explains technical terminology and difficult procedures rather than simply (as is the case with so many similar treatments) avoiding them. These are the kind of guides that, when carefully read and followed, can make anyone an amateur expert in the particular skill addressed. This book ties in with current eco-trends of self-sufficiency, organic food, and local sourcing. It provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to foraging for beginners. Clear color reference illustrations are included for reliable identification of wild foods.
