    The Complete Guide to Self-Sufficiency by John Seymour was good. If I'm not mistaken they've just published an updated version. And for an interesting read and wonderful recipes try Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. Once you get past her ode to asparagus the book gets quite interesting.

    I love that book, had to get rid of my copy when we moved, so I'm looking for the new edition now. The guy who took over from John Seymour is based in Ireland if I'm not mistaken. I'd love to go on one of his courses. It sounds amazing.
