>Her passing is posted now... She will be missed.
Carla Emery's memory will live on through the nine editions of her
wonderful book. Countless homesteaders and gardeners are because of her
more knowledgeable and are living the good life more fully. She done good.
This is what I have in Country Bookstore on my web site:
THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COUNTRY LIVING, by Carla Emery
Carla Emery is a national treasure. This is simply the most informative
book ever written on country living, the next best thing to having a
live-in grandmother who knows everything there is to getting homegrown food
from dreams to dinner plates plus nearly anything else you need to know.
Begun as a 12-page table of contents for a recipe book in 1969, the present
ninth edition has 858 pages of far more than recipes. Veggies, vines,
trees, grains, poultry, goats, cows, bees, rabbits, sheep, pigs. Planning,
nurturing, harvesting, preserving, preparing. Flipping pages at random
finds starting transplants, breads leavened with eggs and beating, speeding
up tomato sauce-making, harvesting herbs, making cider, managing an
existing stand of trees, root cellar storage, soap making, brooding chicks,
secrets to safe cattle handling, cultured buttermilk, cooking on a wood
stove, jams and jellies, making a wool quilt. If your budget or bookshelf
has room for only one book, this is the book to buy. Go to Amazon's page
for THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COUNTRY LIVING
