This book by author Sara Pitzer started 30 years ago, when she wrote the book Wholegrains for the original folks of the back-to-the-land movement. Today, she writes about grain harvesting with a different attitude, one that helps modern homesteaders grown their own food at a smaller, more manageable scale.
