The Post Carbon Reader: Managing the 21st Century's Sustainability Crises by Richard Heinberg and Daniel Lerch
The Post Carbon Reader: Managing the 21st Century's Sustainability Crises

Susanne, September 18, 2011

An excellent reader with specific recommendations on how to be "resilient," both personally and communally, in the coming post-carbon years. Changed my thinking on our casual use of the word "sustainability." In addition to the chapters on fuel, water, and food, there is study of social sustainability, something I had never considered. Really thought-provoking work here.

Twelve by Twelve: A One-Room Cabin Off the Grid and Beyond the American Dream

Susanne, May 10, 2010

A very powerful and thoughtful exploration of what living off the grid in America really means the emotions it provokes.

On a Dollar a Day: One Couple's Unlikely Adventures in Eating in America by Christopher Greenslate and Kerri Leonard
On a Dollar a Day: One Couple's Unlikely Adventures in Eating in America

Susanne, March 4, 2010

While vaguely aware of all the privileges we have as Americans, this book spotlights the various levels of food accessibility we have within the US, and how that compares with the rest of the world. It is not a "how-to" eat on $1 a day, as much as a how-to eat well, without wasting food. It's a really well written book and I learned more than I thought I would! They are very honest about the tolls of eating on a $1 a day!

Drawing Closer to Nature: Making Art in Dialogue with the Natural World by Peter London
Drawing Closer to Nature: Making Art in Dialogue with the Natural World

Susanne, January 9, 2009

This book isn't what I thought it was! It sat on my bookshelf for a long time and recently I picked it up and started reading. It is a fantastic journey about art and becoming real and listening to nature. It is like a meditation, pure inspiration!
