This project is a collaboration between the Well-Fed Neighbor Alliance, The Statesmen For Our Constitutional Republic, and other organizations. The goal of the handbook is to provide a guidebook and framework for restoring
the sovereignty, good stewardship, stability, and general resilience of the counties of the United States, starting with Lawrence County, Missouri, as our initial focal point. Sovereignty is the focal point of this effort: none of the other terms we use: good stewardship, stability, and resilience, make sense outside the context of local people having control over their own lives. This is a partial draft with contributions from dozens of people. The CRHB website is currently being redesigned for the next stage of the effort, but PDFs will continue to be made available here.

Abstract
This project is a collaboration between the Well-Fed Neighbor Alliance, The Statesmen For Our ConstitutionalRepublic, and other organizations. The goal of the handbook is to provide a guidebook and framework for restoringthe sovereignty, good stewardship, stability, and general resilience of the counties of the United States, starting withLawrence County, Missouri, as our initial focal point. Sovereignty is the focal point of this effort: none of the otherterms we use: good stewardship, stability, and resilience, make sense outside the context of local people having controlover their own lives.None of this is intended to imply that a locality can or must isolate itself from the rest of the country or the world. Eachlocality, however, can and must be prepared to provide its most critical needs for itself, when it must, during all kindsof emergencies or crises. A locality must also have alternatives for any of its basic needs, even those it traditionallyprovides for itself. Without being able to provide for its own needs, neither a community nor its individuals haveautonomy nor control over their own destinies: you cannot successfully negotiate for anything when you cannot walk away from a bad deal.The Lawrence County document is meant to be heavily tailored for different localities. Clearly Greene County, MO,Tioga County, NY, Los Angeles County, CA, and Pima County, AR have very different needs and must meet themdifferently. No single effort can hope to cover all these diverse needs, but many ideas and best practices can be shared.The Handbook is a compendium of knowledge developed in an online shared-authoring environment at http:// countyrestorationhandbook.thestatesmen.org. Periodic snapshots are published from the online information.

The supplemental documents (e.g. Barrelponics manual, downdraft wood gasifier plans, etc.) are NOT included in this PDF. I will likely put them in a separate PDF, but they are currently prohibitively large files.

This is a PDF of draft 0.1.2 (November 2010). Since the main website is down for overhaul, I am putting the PDF here; I will continue to post new drafts here as a backup and alternate download source even when the new site is up.
