Written in 1944. This book may save a soldier's life. It may even save your own. "Living Off The Land" is a practical guide to bushcraft, written by bushmen -- by men who have learned the things they tell you in the stern school of experience. "Living Off The Land" does what the title indicates. It tells you what to do if you get "bushed"; how to find food and water where the quest looks hopeless; how to guard your health; how to avoid dangers and extreme hardship. It is full of fascinating facts and out-of-the-way knowledge. "Living Off The Land" has been made available for general publication by the Army Education authorities, who produce "Salt," the Army Journal.

In an age of highly processed foods and more and more people with food allergies and intolerances, interest in local and organic foods and healthy eating is skyrocketing. This is where Living Off the Land - Ireland's Kitchen comes in. The Connemara region of Ireland is one of the country's most picturesque areas. Oscar Wilde once called it "a savage beauty." With its rugged hills, postcard-pretty heaths and moors, and rocky western coastline, it offers a variety of impressive landscapes. Here, it is still possible to live in harmony with nature and make use of the natural resources and native crops the land provides. This volume takes you to the Screebe House, a historic manor in western Ireland famous for its hospitality, comfort, and outstanding cuisine, and shows how you can use local products to create outstanding dishes with just a bit of cooking skill. Along with classics like a full Irish Breakfast and afternoon scones, you can cook mussels, clams, cockles, scallops, rack of lamb, and learn all about Irish cheeses. Breathtaking landscape photographs from the region round out the book perfectly and sweet you away on a dream trip to the west coast of Ireland.

Walking through the countryside before the end of the Second World War, one could hardly fail to see people working in the fields, often with horses. But huge changes were around the corner and a way of country life that had lasted centuries faded away. Luckily, the camera had come into popular use by the 1860s and this book contains many fascinating photographs of rural workers. Village blacksmiths, ploughmen, hop-pickers, tramps, rat-catchers, working children, game-keepers and many others -- they are all celebrated and explained here by Frances Mountford's wonderful illustrations, anecdotes and photographs. The jigsaw of all those who made up country life are pieced together in this fascinating "scrap-book"-style, highly informative book.

McMillan blends real life experiences with imagination to weave a story of an independent backwoods “country boy” who meets a sophisticated “city girl”. Follow their lives, sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, as two families try to mesh. The book is typical of East Texas Piney Woods during the early 1940s through the war years. Rex Horn meets Mary Ann Anderson on a trying journey with his science and math teacher to Detroit Michigan. Their mission is to pick up a new school bus chassis to replace that of a worn out school bus. Mary Ann and her mother are on the train, and she and Rex meet. The two young people are immediately smitten and intrigued by the other’s lifestyle. Mary Ann visits Rex at his rustic, pioneer type home, nestled in a remote section of an area known as The Big Thicket in the southern part of East Texas. Mary Ann is intrigued by Rex’s parents who, unlike her parents, are uneducated but respected and leaders in the Foggy Bottom Community. Martha Horn, Rex’s mother and Beth Horn, his sister, are both dynamic women who teach Mary Ann life skills necessary to live off the land. Rex’s encounter with a panther, while trapping in the Neches river bottom, add spice to the story and peak Mary Ann’s interest. Many of the tales related in this story are true, and are written as they happened; others are embellished. The reader will have fun trying to separate facts from fiction.

When he first envisioned becoming a farmer, author Emmet Van Driesche never imagined his main crop would be Christmas trees, nor that such a tree farm could be more of a managed forest than the conventional grid of perfectly sheared trees. Carving Out a Living on the Land tells the story of how Van Driesche navigated changing life circumstances, took advantage of unexpected opportunities, and leveraged new and old skills to piece together an economically viable living, while at the same time respecting the land's complex ecological relationships. From spoon carving to scything, coppicing to wreath-making, Carving Out a Living on the Land proves that you don't need acres of expensive bottomland to start your land-based venture, but rather the creativity and vision to see what might be done with that rocky section or ditch or patch of trees too small to log. You can lease instead of buy; build flexible, temporary structures rather than sink money into permanent ones; and take over an existing operation rather than start from scratch. What matters are your unique circumstances, talents, and interests, which when combined with what the land is capable of producing, can create a fulfilling and meaningful farming life.

Do you have what it takes? You’re alone in the wilderness with nothing but a knife and the clothes on your back. Will you survive? Do you have the skills to feed, clothe, and protect yourself? Mark Elbroch, a master tracker, and Mike Pewtherer, a woodland skills educator, put those questions to the test when they embarked on a 46-day, unprovisioned, unequipped journey into the dense wilderness of the northeastern United States. Wilderness Survival is their highly practical and uniquely observant introduction to survival in the deep woods. Mark and Mike tested generally accepted truths, questioned conventional solutions, and distilled the best techniques for making fire, obtaining shelter, finding water, and hunting with primitive weapons. They give you: • A life-saving handbook of survival skills that explores man's place in the natural world • The secret to surviving in the wilderness as part of nature—not its adversary • Explanations of more than 30 wilderness survival skills, including hunting and gathering food, fashioning tools, and preserving and storing food

This book presents a visionary concept for future development of space travel. It describes the enabling technology for future propulsion concepts and demonstrates how mankind will ‘live off the land in space’ in migration from Earth. For the next few millennia at least (barring breakthroughs), the human frontier will include the solar system and the nearest stars. Will it be better to settle the Moon, Mars, or a nearby asteroid and what environments can we expect to find in the vicinity of nearby stars? These are questions that need to be answered if mankind is to migrate into space.

Living Off-Grid in Wales addresses broad debates about the possibility of planning for a sustainable future, by an examination of rural development off the grid. Contrasting Wales’s policy on One Planet Development – a planning policy that encourages living off-grid – with a more DIY approach to living off-grid, the book presents case studies from eco-villages that imagine off-grid very differently. The text pivots on the problematic question that if planning is about the spatial reproduction of society, then why should it encourage autonomy from societal systems. The ethnographic case studies in the book comprise an ethnography of rural Wales, and the focus on eco-villages brings a fresh perspective to the anthropological literature on community by considering off-grid as a radical form of social assemblage.
