Books have always played a big part in my life and while video’s, podcasts and blog posts are useful, the book will always be my favorite resource.
I find homesteading related books particularly helpful and enjoyable as I like to have information for gardening, food preparation, foraging, permaculture and just about anything else that could possibly have anything to do with the homesteading lifestyle.
Here is a small list of my favorite homesteading books.
