Camping out has changed considerably from the good old days of pine bough beds, bonfires and fresh-cut trail shelters. No longer is it ethical to shape the land to suit our whims. There are just too few wild places and too many of us. As an unfortu-nate result, the days of the wise old scoutmaster who could sniff a coming storm and rig a tight camp in a driving rain seems to have succumbed to the age of the tech-weenie. Skills have taken a back acre to equipment. It's important to have high tech equipment, but what if you can't afford it? What if you become separated from your stove in a capsize? What if a large tear develops in your tent in canyon country or a remote northern river? Are you prepared? Are your skills honed? Do you have the skills it takes to survive the mosquitoes, the rain, or the cold food in the event of a disaster?

No electricity, no gas, no flushing toilet, and no tractor! Could you survive a year on a Victorian farm? In this fascinating time-traveling experiment a team of historians spend a year recreating farm life in 1885. Accompanying the television series, this book follows the team as they try to run a farm using only materials and resources that would have been available to them in the Victorian era. This was a crucial period in the history of Britain--rapid industrialization had radically changed life in the cites but rural communities used a mixture of centuries-old and pioneering modern practices. Packed with informative text and photographs from the farm year, this book reveals exactly what the Victorians ate and wore and how they managed their animals, farmed the land, and organized their lives. Providing a real insight into life on a Victorian farm, this series is also a fascinating reminder of how history comes full circle. The organic diet of 1885, use of natural products for cleaning and healthcare, and interests in crafts and gardening are of increasing relevance today as we look for a more responsible way of living over 120 years later.
