Radio-TV Interview Report, Mid-January 2000
"From Fighting Flu to Cleaning Your House...What Country Folk Know that You
Don't." Now your audience can learn all the wisdom and secrets that have been
passed down from generation to generation of folks living in the country. Tips
on how to use rubbing alcohol, lighter fluid and vinegar when cleaning, and how
to plant a cold and flu garden to make your winter healthier and happier."

The Boston Herald, Andy Tomolonis 12/19/99
"Edited by Deborah Burns, subtitled "A Practical Guide to Self-Reliance," this
encyclopedia is big enough for the coffee table but better suited to the tool
shed. In addition to providing bushels of advice on gardening, it's a manual for
everyday survival in rural America. Come to think of it, "BCS" may be required
reading between Christmas and Y2K. Some skills you might pick up: how to build a
garden shed, caring for pet llamas, techniques for building a stone wall and
making your own preserves. Even if you only use 1 percent of the information in
it, BCS is fascinating reading."
