Synopsis

Self-sufficiency A Guide for 21st-century Living by Alan Bridgewater, Gill Bridgewater

Self-sufficiency, or at least the desire to practise elements of a self-sufficient lifestyle, has become a growing trend of recent years. This useful book shows how anyone can turn to self-sufficiency. Although hugely practical, this book has an attractive feel and will appeal to large numbers of urban dwellers who may want to take on certain aspects of self-sufficient living. The idea is 'traditional skills for modern living' and the book is intended to appeal primarily to women in their thirties, probably with young families. The book covers a number of current trends (eco-awareness, make do and mend, grow your own) without being preachy or worthy. The book is more about getting back in touch with traditional lifestyles and bringing charm and uniqueness to our homes and lives. This title features photographs and diagrams to appeal to the large numbers of people who aspire to a self-sufficient lifestyle.
