Cover 36

Note from the publisher


   Self-reliance means no scapegoats


Think of it this way:
   Steam-driven cars

Where I live:
   Founder — a hard lesson in horse care

Ayoob on firearms:
   Selecting the backwoods battery

   Wild turkey, goose and venison for the holidays
   Soups for winter
   Try cooking on top of your heating stove
   In search of the perfect bowl of chili
   Make butter the easy way

Just for kids:
   Some farinaceous folly

Original poem:
   John Earl Silveira
