Storey’s Basic Country Skills

A Practical Guide to Self-Reliance

by John and Martha Storey

Whether it’s making ice cream or sharpening an axe, cleaning a chimney or growing raspberries, you’ll learn how to do it in this treasury of time-honored country wisdom.  Illustrated step-by-step instructions will show you how to milk a cow, tap a maple tree, clean a fish, lead a horse, and build the best chicken coop.  You’ll find out how to heat  your house with wood or by the sun and how to de-skunk a country dog.  You’ll learn the proper way to put in a water system, rewire an old house, stack a cord of wood, and grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
