illustrated by line-drawings, "this pamphlet is written to give practical help to those seeking a simple, self-sufficient life. It contains one man's experience on one particular organic smallholding where a certain measure of sufficiency is achieved. A family could survive on its own in complete isolation, but this would be a rather uncomfortable and insecure subsistence. Three or four neighbouring smallholders, working in harmony and pooling their individual skills, could live far better. Add a bit of modern technology and life becomes easier, with more leisuretime, less drudgery. The big question is "how self-sufficient does one aim to become?" Today one can choose one's level, seek the best of both worlds ... only a fool would deliberately make hardships for himself ... but this option clouds the issue, making it difficult to define one's ultimate, long-term aim. Tomorrow, however, we may well be thrown right back onto our own resources, in which case the question will answer itself. It would seem sensible to be prepared."; spine a little grubby; 18 pages.THIS BOOKLET IS POST-FREE - any postal charges indicated will be reduced to nil. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
