Some more information about earthship building, with even more details about the systems featured in them, such as water collection, lighting, temperature regulation, etc. A really great reference material. The only thing is, it is a bit dated when it comes to specific technology related info, such as light fixtures.

While volume 1 talks about the structure and placement of an earthship, volume 2 goes into the systems that make it work. It feels a little dated in that technology has improved since Reynolds published, but the principles seem solid. I liked his gray water recycling ideas and there's even more diagrams of nifty things to do with tin cans.
