A timeless guide to a simpler life.

Learn the art of:

  • Cheese making
  • Catching runaway pigs
  • Smoking and curing meats
  • Hosting a potato peeling competition

Yes, you read that right. Runaway pigs. It might not happen often, but those squealers can really run when they sniff freedom. Everyone should know how to, ahem, bring home the bacon.

For anyone who finds satisfaction in doing things with their own two hands, here’s advice on accomplishing projects big and small around the house, garden and farm. Written by farmers and craftsmen, with original text and illustrations from the 1919 first edition, this 100th anniversary volume presents a new generation with expert guidance on every facet of homesteading. Brimming with wit, wisdom, and nostalgia, How to Do Things is a celebration of self-reliance and a charming invitation to reconnect with life's simple pleasures.
