Raleigh Briggs collects her zines, illustrations, and thoughts around what it is that makes a great DIY household--homemade cleaning solvents that aren't made from poison, herbs that will heal you, and how to setup a great garden. These tips and tricks fill in the gaps for those of us longing to live this lifestyle but lacking the necesary know-how.
