Anyone who wants to learn basic living skills-the kind employed by our forefathers-and adapt them for a better life in the twenty-first century need look no further than this eminently useful, full-color guide. Countless readers have turned to Back to Basics for inspiration and instruction, escaping to an era before power saws and fast food restaurants and rediscovering the pleasures and challenges of a healthier, greener, and more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Now newly updated, the hundreds of projects, step-by-step sequences, photographs, charts, and illustrations in Back to Basics will help you dye your own wool with plant pigments, graft trees, raise chickens, craft a hutch table with hand tools, and make treats such as blueberry peach jam and cheddar cheese. The truly ambitious will find instructions on how to build a log cabin or an adobe brick homestead. More than just practical advice, this is also a book for dreamers-even if you live in a city apartment you will find your imagination sparked, and there's no reason why you can't, for example, make a loom and weave a rag rug. Complete with tips for old-fashioned fun (square dancing calls, homemade toys, and kayaking tips), this may be the most thorough book on voluntary simplicity available.

Love it

Great. Lots of useful tips in print. YouTube may not be there forever, and if you’re like me, you stay away from censoring platforms anyway.

Here are more great reasons to buy from us:
We're Independent.

Around here, you won’t find any slick bankrollers or financiers behind the curtain. We’re 100% family-owned and owe nothing to anyone but you! This frees us up to do things the right way: craft our own recipes, cook our own food, fills our food pouches, and ship our own orders. We own three large, fully-stocked warehouses spanning over 500,000 square feet which ensures our quality packaging of your order. Others cut corners and outsource their shipping to third-parties and that's simply not right. It’s also why our quality and savings are better than the rest—and we pass those right along to you with fair pricing.

Record-Fast Shipping Speeds.

Customers call our shipping "impressive," "flawless," and "man-that-came-fast" excellent.

Double Protection, No Cutting Corners.

We take the extra steps that others don’t to protect your food with double-sized oxygen absorbers and ultra-thick, four-layer pouches that we test again and again to ensure quality.

5-Star Customer Service (Literally.)

We've served several million American families over the past decade. Our customers have spoken, giving us 4.8 out of 5 stars based on tens of thousands of reviews.

2,000+ Calories/Day in our Food Kits.

Our food kits provide 2,000+ quality calories per day with the nutrition you need (you’d be shocked at how many competitors skimp and don’t do this!)

We’re Serious about Your Privacy.
