Made From Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life. —By Jenna Woginrich.
Orvis author and web designer, Jenna Woginrich set out to create a more self-sufficient lifestyle through the re-discovery of age-old homesteading skills. Without any prior hands-on experience but with a wealth of enthusiasm and inspiration, she moved to a rented farmhouse in northern Idaho and learned to grow her own food, raise chickens, keep bees, and play the southern mountain fiddle. In this optimistic memoir detailing her journey toward self-reliance, Woginrich teaches us that it is possible in any urban, suburban, or rural setting to incorporate lifestyle changes toward self-sufficiency and to learn the simple skills that have been mostly forgotten in a consumer-driven culture. "Made from Scratch" by Jenna Woginrich is 192 pages.
