Very comprehensive guide to a multitude of traditional skills. This book seems to have everything in it. If I had to choose one thing to take with me to the middle of nowhere it would be this book.

A great starter book for looking at the variety of techniques for going off the grid and managing your own life, food, and shelter systems. Each topic is introduced in a bite-sized peice for a brief overview and instruction of how to do it. Sample topics include canning, digging a water system, and creating your own stove.
