About the Author

George Nash has been living a self-reliant life for almost 40 years. Author, seller of Christmas trees in Manhattan for the last 35 years, former builder and renovator and homesteader at "Gopher Broke Farm," George is truly a jack-of-all trades. Jane Waterman was raised on a New Hampshire dairy farm and learned gardening and animal husbandry from an early age. Jane now lives full-time on the homestead with husband George, raising their own vegetables, berries, eggs, meat and fuel.


This thorough and readable volume will prepare you for living with fowl, working soil the old fashioned way, and successfully growing berry and orchard crops. Unlike some of the competing homesteading books, this is not a political screed or a master's thesis. George and Jane tell you how to grow it, prepare it and perserve it. They are back-to-the-landers so expect to learn lots of low-tech tips for getting good results in the garden without investing in a lot of newfangled gadgets and such. "--The Vancouver Sun

"--The Seattle Times"Homesteading is hot stuff these days, but it's frustrating. Many how-to manuals seem to be written by relative newbies who are glamorously photographed tending chickens and harvesting vegetables on their spotless new farms. It's refreshing, then, to read "Homesteading in the 21st Century "(Taunton Press, $24.95), cowritten by George Nash and Jane Waterman, whose photos reveal them to be unadorned, middle-aged folks doing real work...If you're serious about self-sufficiency, to any degree, this book is a valuable resource. "-The Philadelphia Inquirer"Written with humour and experience, the husband and wife team penned a primer on country living that communicates their love for homesteading without whitewashing the hard times. That the two persevered speaks volumes about their tenacity. The self-proclaimed hippies ind
