About the author:
Sue Robishaw lives with her husband, Steve Schmeck, amid much wildlife on their off-grid, north-woods homestead in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Their interest in a sustainable lifestyle and world permeates their lives and work (which are seldom separate). A large organic garden and orchard is one of Sue's passions as well as the source for most of their food. She weaves all of her interests/passions/work/lifestyle choices together in a way that suits her belief in the joy of life and which changes color and pattern as new opportunities emerge and life changes. These include hiking, writing, watercolor, music and dance -- and designing and knitting colorful wool socks for warmth and fun!

Homesteading Adventures

A Guide for Doers and Dreamers

Authored by Sue Robishaw
Authored with Steve Schmeck
Edition: 2

A wonderfully friendly and practical how-to manual for creating the homesteading "simple life", with laughter included. Share Sue and Steve's adventures as they build their homestead in the northwoods with a bit of irreverent help from their fictional newbie neighbors, lounging JJ and his enthusiastic partner CindyLou. This is a book for doers who have done and dreamers who are just beginning. From homebuilt underground house to homemade wine, "Homesteading Adventures" is full of down-home how-to that will inspire anyone interested in living and creating their own unique life whether in the backwoods or in the city.

With a foreword by Jd Belanger, former publisher and editor of "Countryside Magazine" and written in 1997, this book has now become a classic in the homesteading world, chronicling the first twenty years of Sue and Steve's "ManyTracks" homestead. Revised and edited from the original, the fictional JJ and CindyLou have retreated a bit (per reader request) and some of the information has been updated but the main core of the original is still happily intact to help and inspire a new generation of "back-to-the-landers" of all ages and all backgrounds who are planning, ready, or already embarked on their own adventure into the homestead life.
