The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook is a blueprint for moving into a changing energy future. It distills the essentials for small-footprint living, leavened with deep wisdom, a wide variety of wonderful recipes, juicy quotes and reminders to enjoy life as we power down.

Albert Bates is a teacher of permaculture and natural building and uses his wide range of practical skills to produce this inspirational manual on surviving oil peak and moving into energy descent. Bates offers detailed practical advice in sections on saving water, managing waste, creating energy, growing and storing food, and re-building community.

Even better, the Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook really is a cookbook, with dozens of recipes accompanying the text that emphasize fresh, locally-grown food.

This up-beat but down to earth guide to preparing and thriving in a world beyond oil is definitely a book to have on your shelf as an indispensable reference during the coming years.
