A Great Series on how on people use to do thing when they were mostly self sufficient, and not store dependent different volumes cover everything from snake handling. to log cabin building to planting by the seasons, a must for DIY'ers and survivalists. Check out for individual contents.
Another in an ongoing series of great books capturing many aspects of rural Appalachian life in past generations; as well as painting a portrait of a vanishing culture, it covers concrete information on how to do lots of things both practical and fun.
