"Homesteading in the 21st Century" chronicles how one family created a more sustainable, self-sufficient, and satisfying life. This ultimate DIY guide holds to the premise that anyone can homestead.

Not since Thoreau made his home in the woods at Walden Pond has the notion of self-sufficiency held more universal appeal. There's no question we're going through some tough economic times, but this book offers an alternative. It's a guide for anyone who imagines a better life--from struggling families tired of energy dependency to dreamers who always wished they could live off the land someday. This ultimate DIY guide holds to the premise that anyone can homestead, and raise at least a portion of their food themselves--even if they live in the city. Homesteading in the 21st Century is absolutely brimming with ideas on how to take control of your life by degrees--whether that means keeping chickens, growing a garden, or brewing your own beer.

This book is extremely detailed about how to become a homesteader. I was looking for a few pointers, but this was way over my head. If you know nothing about homesteading and want to become a homesteader, this is your book.
