This book is geared toward the beginner wanting to become more self-reliant and not knowing where to start. The simple style and words make it easy to understand. It provides the various areas that can make up a homestead and what you can consider for your version of a homestead. It doesn't matter where you are trying to be more self-reliant, whether its urban, suburban, or country the information will be useful. There are lists of the items, tools and equipment you can and should have to become more self-reliant. I also cover some other areas that you won't find in other books, including scavenging to find items for your homestead and the differences between homesteaders and preppers. It should prove to be a valuable resource in print and is also available as an e-book for the Kindle and other devices.
