Some very practical, if main-stream, information. The whole premise of the book is that if you are independently wealthy, you can make a living on one acre. For someone who would like to REALLY make their lively hood off a piece of land, this book would be helpful, but won't have all the answers you are looking for. Try 'You Can Farm' by Joel Salatin if you really want to make a go of living off the farm.
