Whether you live in the city or the country-or anywhere in between- this is the complete, practical guide to living well and living simply.

Great book!
by Heather Price on Jun 7, 2012

Very AWESOME book. I got a copy of it MANY yrs ago and it is actually going in my will to my daughter when I go home. The reason being is I was one of many that actually got to meet Carla at a talk in Indiana a couple yrs before she pasted and got my copy autographed. I lived out of this book so much that I recently had to tape the cover and a few pages back on it...haha
When I am asked about a book for living self sufficient this is the main book I always recommend.

Hello, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the service you provide with your herb company. My husband now tells everyone the benefits of herbs. This strikes a lot of people as funny, because my husband is a big ole' country boy type who is a logger. Yes, I can remember the day he turned up his nose at them, but with God's help, he now looks at them differently. Thank you for the company. I share it with anyone who asks about herbs.

We also have found help for our deacon at church who suffers from chronic gout. I had read herbal teas could help with this, so he tried Peppermint tea. He has found some relief for his gout, and tells everyone about it. That's the reason I order so much peppermint. So, once again, I thank you for your service, and I pray that the Lord will continue to help you in this service. Thank you.

~Dreama F.

PS. The How to Herb Book and The ABC Herbal have been wonderful helps to me.
