New York: Harper & Brothers, Publishers, 1949. Hardcover. xi, 180p., photo section on coated inserted paperstock, hardbound in 8x5.5 inch tan cloth boards. Lacks the dust jacket, head and tail rims slightly crimped, nice clean sound copy. Find here fanaticism one usually associates with survivalists or WWIII preparedness nuts, but actually quite practical: beekeeping, hatching chickens, smokehoused food, in-house partitions for privacy, get the kids repairing their own toys, and on and on.
