The part that knows how to get an electrical system running, rig a snow plow, grade a road, build a house, repair the plumbing, plow the fields, set up a wood stove and keep it running at top efficiency, get the dozer running when there are
no parts around, pump some water into a reserve tank, fix things, design things, build stuff, and on and on with all of the things it takes to set up a homestead and keep it functioning at top performance.

You'll learn from those who have done it and done it well. What you will not see are lots of opinions on what might work, and vague theories about why. You won't hear about how all you need is a dozen chickens and an old pickup truck for a successful foray into homesteading. There are already lots of magazines and other publications out there that will tell you that.

Instead, you'll learn just exactly what it does take to make it beyond the powerlines and sidewalks, and you'll learn it from folks who moved out to the woods, miles from the nearest powerline, and built a self-sufficient homestead from the ground up, paying their way with earnings from home. LIVE YOUR DREAM!

We're not just all about the nuts-and-bolts stuff, though. There are many really essential facets of the homesteading adventure that get scarce mention in other publications. You'll find them all here. Among them are converstation on the wonders of Homestead Kids, Home-schooling, and how about . . .

Here's a review of the Second Edition from Dave Duffy,
Editor of The Mother Earth News

"It's seldom I get excited about a book, but I'm excited about this one. Skip Thomsen and his wife, Cat Freshwater, have produced what I believe to be the best homesteading manual in years. It's not pie-in-the-sky stuff, but straight talk about the difficulties, as well as the rewards, of moving to the country and becoming self-reliant. Too many people who have sought to go back to the land have been bushwhacked by the things many back-to-the-land books never talk about, such as how to make a living so you can stay in the country. This book talks about them and tells you how to deal with them. The Modern Homestead Manual does not just provide good information, but also gives you the philosophy you'll need to succeed in the country. Thomsen and Freshwater have lived what they write. The book is the result of 15 years of actually doing it, solving the problems as they presented themselves, and in the end, succeeding and loving it. If you want to significantly increase your chances of success when you move to the country, or if you want to take a fresh look at what you are currently doing in the country, this book will be a sound investment in your future."
