Extreme Simplicity: Homesteading in the City

Overview

The Nyergeses are gentle survivalists. Prepared to cope with the worst that nature or human craziness can deliver - earthquakes and droughts, power failures or terrorist attacks - they have devised ways of growing and preserving garden produce, finding wild edibles, harvesting storm runoff for backup water supplies, preparing food with a wood stove and solar cooker and recycling everything from bottle caps to wood chips.

    Nothing new

    I read this book and even though it was somewhat interesting I didn't feel it offered anything that I hadn't seen many times before. The authors repeat themselves many times throughout the book, almost directly quoting themselves. Be frugal, look for what others discard, eat weeds, etc. Obvious stuff for the most part. There are several older books that I feel do a much better job with realistic homesteading in cities: The Integral House,The complete book of Edible Landscaping,etc all give better examples of what could be done in an Urban area.
