    That's funny, I bought one of those at a flea market a year ago.

    I love the idea, but sometimes it makes you wonder about how the author's decided what to include and what not to. I.E., a page on natural childbirth, and the next few pages on small aircraft navigation.

    Good stuff!

    The Author was a pioneer of alternative living and included everything that he could think of that might be of use, might be a bargain, or had strategic purpose. One of my favorites is a factory that made building materials out of polermerized black strap molasses.

    My beard is as old as TLWEC. My first wife took all copies when she left along with much else. Oh well. Would Love a copy of The Anarchists Cookbook. Had all the Mother Earth News and the Foxfire Books also. The ten achres in Vermont was the 2nd biggest loss.

    I have one called The Big Book of Self-Reliant Living. At a glance it seems to have some odd listings but if the 8th grade public school curriculum were based on this book the avg person wouldn't seem like such a moron.

    Have a few of the titles already listed, as well.
