Reviews - What do customers think about Five Acres and Independence?

An oldie but goodie  Sep 30, 2009
A homesteading manual from the turn of the century, this book is a wealth of information regarding the tips and tricks of running a productice small scale farm.
Five Acres and Independence  Sep 14, 2008
Don't knoow much about it, was purchased as a gift. Received it in a timely manner in good condition.
Stands the test of time (well, mostly...)  Aug 24, 2008
I have the 1973 version of this book (still available through this site). The 1973 version is really the original 1935 text (published in 1940) with a forward written in 1973. I suspect the 2007 version is much the same. The chapters are many and include: City vs Country Life, Tried and True Ways to Fail, Who is Likely to Succeed, Figures Don't Lie, The Farm to Choose, Where to Locate, Lay and Lay-out of Land, Windbreaks - Pro and Con, Essential Factors of Production, Renting vs Buying, Capital, Farm Finance, Farm Accounts, Water Supply, Sewage Disposal, Functions of Water, Drainage, and they go on and on for a total of 51 chapters with fairly small print so there's a lot packed into this book.

The Appendices is roughly 40 pages and offers information about things like the number of plants you'll need per acre (or any size portion of land), how to figure what farm equipment really costs to own, and much more. Although the prices quoted to use in the formulas are laughingly low by today's costs - the math and theory behind them is still applicable.

I felt it was worth the price for all that's packed into it that is still applicable today (although I bought mine in good used condition for about half the cover price).

If you want to know more about this book, just read the reviews for the previous version.
