You are right , it is a very wide subject and it is better to concentrate on one thing at a time and look up references for that, rather than look for a book which purports to teach you "natural living". For instance look up "How to prepare a rabbit for the pot." This will be slightly different to "How to prepare a pheasant for cooking." Game birds need to be "Hung" for a while, before they are "Pulled". Traditional farming methods are different according to where you live, the animals and plants you will use will be different, so try to find reference books written close to home. Once you know what plants and animals will thrive where you live, you can decide which you would like to have and look for a book on growing different beans, or raising goats. Many books have been written about "smallholdings," and these are usually very explicit and entertaining. You will hopefully also find websites and blogs from people in your own area, and they will give you advice.
