As I devour these, I may as well share a bit:

Science: What's Going On


Casey, John L.: Upheaval! Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States

Highly recommend. Casey's latest work, including other researchers, speaks specifically to the seismic effects that the extended solar minimum produces, both historically, and actively now.

Casey, John L.: Dark Winter

Skills: How to Survive It

Rawles, James Wesley: How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It

Reading now. Was widely reviewed well, and I hope the man has as much pride in this work as his fiction. Patriots is absolutely worth reading.

Rawles, James Wesley: Patriots

In fact, I'm including this. It's basically survival book in fiction format. Total page turner, and also informative as to how an EMP/CME might play out.


Elias, Thomas and Dykeman, Peter: Edible Wild Plants: A North American Field Guide

Homes: How to Build Them

Oehler, Mike: The $50 and Up Underground House Book

Food: How to Grow It

Emery, Carla: The Encyclopedia of Country Living

Matt Powers The Permaculture Student

This basically spans all categories: growing, preserving/storing, animals. Great reference.


Baum, Dr. Aaron Wolf: Grow Your Own Spirulina Superfood: a simple how-to guide

Short, consise, to the point. Based on his decades of phycological experience. This is standing on shoulders of giants.


Warnock, Caleb: The Forgotten Skills of Self-Sufficiency used by the Mormon Pioneers

Decent, a little bit weak sauce. I enjoyed the historical sidebars, accounts of folks who struggled to make it and did, generally. Often simply references other books (although, largely ones that I've read and would suggest are required reading: Jeavens, Seed-to-Seed, etc). Not at the top of my list.

Markham, Brett: MiniFarming, Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre

Ashworth, Suzanne: Seed to Seed

Seymour, John: The Self-Sufficient Gardener

Jeavons, John: How to Grow More Vegetables, And Fruits, Nuts, Berries...

Jeavens outlines the Biointensive methodology. The link is to the 8th edition, ymmv
