I always liked the old foxfire series, that preserves some dying knowledge of past times. A series of old techniques.



First published in 1972, The Foxfire Book was a surprise bestseller that brought Appalachia's philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers. Whether you wanted to hunt game, bake the old-fashioned way, or learn the art of successful moonshining, The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center had a contact who could teach you how with clear, step-by-step instructions. This classic debut volume of the acclaimed series covers a diverse array.

book 1 contains

The Foxfire Book: Hog Dressing, Log Cabin Building, Mountain Crafts and Foods, Planting by the Signs, Snake Lore, Hunting Tales,​

I’ve never heard of them but they sound interesting and I may need to get a set of these books

Looks interesting. Where is a good place to get such books?
Looks like a bunch of his books (and videos) are available at Amazon:
and several of them are available from Audible, as well. I think he reads all of his audiobooks.

The foxfire series we have and good books to have on hand. Both series are of great benefit should the lights go out.

Not in Oklahoma!
I have Salad Bar Beef and Pastured Poultry Profits.

Good author! Good books!

Up until a few years ago, there was a guy up here in Ohio who also was a terrific author. Gene Logsdon.

I have his All Flesh is Grass, and Small Scale Grain Raising. Good books!

I'd cast my vote to let Joel Salatin run the USDA

You can download the first 5 in PDF for free. I forget where but I have those books and will look for the others.

Okay you can download the first 3 here under Homesteading Skills.
