Welcome to the site!

I can't give up my copies (had 'em too long, and stil refer to them), but there's a couple of books I think you would like.

"Five Acres and Independence" by M.G. Kains. Written in the 30s and updated in the 40s, this is a great book with a guy who had both hands-on and book smarts. A little bit of it might be dated (building your own septic system, maybe), but it is excellent.

"Ten Acres Enough" by Edmund Morris. Written in the 1800s, but still has a lot of good info. It is available by mail from Small Farmer's Journal. The guy is a little pompous, but he left the city after a business crash in the 1800s and moved out to the country and established a successful homestead/farming business on 10 acres.

There are lots of others, but I think these are 2 of the best.

Tom
