back to basics & homesteading in the city

My mom lends me these really great books from the 70s that are, clearly, too cool for school.  I'm sure some of them have updated editions, but I prefer these originals.  Aren't you clamoring to get a glimpse inside of these treasures? 
 
Well stop back in tomorrow for a round-up of "How to Learn and Enjoy Traditional American Skills" and "Foods for Life:  How to Avoid Scurvy and Slow Starvation".  Which, judging by the covers, will involve moccasins and maple syrup refinery and possibly even chicken slaughter.  Intriguing, yes?  I'll see you tomorrow.
