Ok this book's title really says it all. It is a guide book but throughout it side stories or experience come into play. This thing is packed with ideas to the core though. In particular I myself will be building a 'tater-tire-tower for potato planting. The non-canning methods of preserving food are great as well. I read through this book and found a ton of information that will be helpful. Although it does say tilling is bad?? Because soil regenerates from the top down and then one comes it to tear it all up just so planting is easier. Makes sense but I will have to look into it some more. If your interested in the title then you'll like it.
