Editorial Reviews:

Those who want to reduce their carbon footprint might do well to consult this century-old guide to low-tech property maintenance. Step-by-step instructions include how to build a lightweight ladder, a small truss bridge, a stump puller, gates that don’t sag and can lift over snowdrifts, a wood splitter, and bicycle-powered machines. For anyone who lives a self-sufficient country life―or for those who wish to―this classic guide from the annals of American history remains current and very practical.

Amazon.com Review
Originally published in 1909, "Handy Farm Devices" is more than an engaging trip down memory lane. For any small farmer or homesteader, the techniques and devices described in detail are just as useful, durable, and fully functional today as they were 75 years ago. You will learn to build a portable chicken coop, a stone boat (for moving stone), a lightweight orchard ladder, gates that don't sag, and a handy wood splitter, as well as rudimentary farm structures, well houses, bee hives, a baby's cradle, a cheese press and much more. The charming, turn-of-the-century language and useful and inspirational quotes from Shakespeare, the Bible, Bacon, Longfellow and many others make this book a delight to read. --Mark A. Hetts
