from those who have done it and done it well. What you will not
see are lots of opinions on what might work, and vague
theories about why. You won't hear about how all you need is
a dozen chickens and an old pickup truck for a successful foray
into homesteading. There are already lots of magazines and other
publications out there that will tell you that.

a review of the Second Edition from Dave Duffy,
of The Mother Earth News
I get excited about a book, but I'm excited about this one. Skip
Thomsen and his wife, Cat Freshwater, have produced what I believe
to be the best homesteading manual in years. It's not pie-in-the-sky
stuff, but straight talk about the difficulties, as well as the
rewards, of moving to the country and becoming self-reliant.
Too many people who have sought to go back to the land have been
bushwhacked by the things many back-to-the-land books never talk
about, such as how to make a living so you can stay in the country.
This book talks about them and tells you how to deal with them.
The Modern Homestead Manual does not just provide good information,
but also gives you the philosophy you'll need to succeed in the
country. Thomsen and Freshwater have lived what they write. The
book is the result of 15 years of actually doing it, solving
the problems as they presented themselves, and in the end, succeeding
and loving it. If you want to significantly increase your chances
of success when you move to the country, or if you want to take
a fresh look at what you are currently doing in the country,
this book will be a sound investment in your future."
