Just read on one of the homesteaders boards that Carla Emery passed away last night. It is a sad day for homesteaders and other back to basics people who learned so much from her book, The Encyclopedia of Country Living.
This book was always the first I turned to when I needed to learn anything new. With Carla's help, I learned to make cheese and learned how to can and a myriad of other self sufficient skills.
My thoughts go out to Don (her husband) and to all of her children and their families.
Carla Emery will be missed by many.
