This book is hard to categorize; on the one hand it has some really amazing recipes so it could be considered a down home, real food cookbook, some of those recipes are for homemade beauty/cleaning supplies so it could also be called a simple/organic living book. There are beautiful personal stories that Melissa shares about her time growing up in a pioneering household, and about her family life now raising her children in the same manner, so it could be considered a biography. There are practical tips for growing your own food, tending gardens & fields, preserving your harvest, and raising livestock so it is also a homesteading book. Melissa weaves all of these genres together with a continual thread of faith and love of God, so it is also an inspirational read.
