Urban Homesteading: Heirloom Skills for Sustainable LivingUrban Homesteading: Heirloom Skills for Sustainable Living

It’s been over a month since the urban homesteading community exploded in an uproar, and now the uproar is getting louder.

Cease and desist letters from the Dervaes family have turned into threats of law suits for the authors of Urban Homesteading: Heirloom Skills for Sustainable Living. The book is being released this month, and apparently is ruffling feathers. I don’t know much about the book myself, but based on judging a book by its cover (and website), it looks like it could be a great resource. And beyond its actually being useful, it’s almost worth it to buy the book simply as an act of outrage. But that’s another story.

A couple other books that I ordered recently and am looking forward to reading:

Making It: Radical Home Ec for a Post-Consumer World
This is a follow-up book to The Urban Homestead from Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen of Root Simple.

Crisis Preparedness Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Home Storage and Physical Survival
I want to learn more about long-term food storage, partially just to know more about buying in bulk and partially for crisis preparedness. This sounded like a good place to start. It seems wise to know a little something about crisis preparedness, whether your interest stems from a fear of a potential natural disaster, economic collapse, zombie apocalypse or end of the world. Take your pick.
