Country Wisdom & Know-How by the editors of Storey Books
Book of the week. This absolute gold mine of knowledge and awesomeness actually contains 8,167 super useful things (written in a tiny 8-point font for anyone who wants to make like that John Prine song and “blow up their TV, throw away their papers, move to the country, and build you a home.” I also think this book should be mandatory reading before you can graduate elementary school. What’s more useful, knowing how to make a moonshine still, skin a rabbi, and grow food, or the difference between a parallelogram and a rhombus?
Bonus: that John Prine song, because John Prine was a genius.
