Jenna Woginrich in this book learns to garden, raise chickens, bees,rabbits, and how to make her own cloths. Along with showing us how to knit and train dogs to pull sleds and carts. We get to see her successes and failures, from baking breed to accidentally killing the bees.
I enjoy this book and she makes a lot of good points, but she does have a few pieces of misinformation like she uses ceder shavings for her chicks which is a big no no because it isn't good for their lungs (same with any small animal). But I do enjoy her writing and if you want to catch up with her or sample her writting you can read about her daily life on http://coldantlerfarm.blogspot.com/ .
