Hello

 Welcome to Rural Revolution's Self-Sufficiency Series.

The publications in this series were created to provide specific and immediately useful information on a wide range of topics related to personal self-sufficiency.

I've tried to make the information user-friendly and accessible to those just beginning their journey toward self-sufficiency, as well as the more experienced travelers of that wonderful path. It is my goal to keep the cost of each of these publications low, and to add more to the series in a timely fashion.

If you, the reader, wish to address any questions or comments concerning this publication or have any requests or suggestions for further publications, I invite you to send an email to: ruralrevolution@hotmail.com or visit my blog at www.rural-revolution.com.

Come join the many wonderful Rural Revolutionaries who have been so helpful with their suggestions, comments, and friendship in bringing these publications to fruition.
