Hat tip to Deckard and Susco where I found this link.  Looks like some great stuff for free:

Not free but look like a couple of interesting books I came across on Amazon tonight:

 Preserving Food without Freezing or Canning: Traditional Techniques Using Salt, Oil, Sugar, Alcohol, Vinegar, Drying, Cold Storage, and Lactic Fermentation

http://www.amazon.com/Preserving-Food-without-Freezing-Canning/dp/1933392592/ref=reg_hu-rd_dp_img

And also saw this one:
Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre [Paperback]
 

Start a mini farm on a quarter acre or less, provide 85 percent of the food for a family of four and earn an income.
Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average family’s food on just a quarter acre—and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-sufficiency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.

Re the second one above I read some of the reviews and it got a lot of very good reviews.  I'm tempted to buy it just to see what he says.

They're both available on Kindle via Amazon too.
