'This handbook covers everything the amateur smallholder needs to know.  It is divided into five main sections: Preparing the ground; planting, growing and harvesting vegetables and fruit; keeping livestock; finding and preparing food from the wild and the sea; and storing and preserving the food that has been produced.  The thoroughly practical text, based on actual experience, is supported by hundreds of photographs and step-by-step illustrations in full colour and black-and-white.  It is an indispensable guide for both the amateur weekend enthusiast and for those aiming to devote all their time to the art of living off the land.'
