Native Wildflowers
Although a commercial site, Pictures of Native Wildflowers is an excellent source of photos of Midwestern and East Coast wildflowers. There is relatively good cultural information, and the images assist in identifying and even ordering wildflowers.


The New Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency, by John Seymour (Dorling Kindersley Publishers Ltd., 2003; $35.80) has a subtitle that says it all: The Classic Guide for Realists and Dreamers. Not only does this book have hard-core information about how to truly be self-sufficient, but it also is a good, easy read for those of us who only dream of having five acres of rural land for homesteading. The information is easily accessible, and the author's philosophy is soft and gentle without dogma and stridency. He helps you choose to do a little or a lot, depending on your circumstances at the moment. Whatever you choose to do, the book is an eye-opener.
