The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre!
This is a great overview of homesteading. At 340 pages, it does a really good job of covering a lot of topics. While it is not the most in-depth book, it is full of solid information and great illustrations. A very good first book to read on homesteading.
The Encyclopedia of Country Living
Considered by many to be the "bible" of homesteading. This is a fantastic and comprehensive book on almost all aspects of living off the land. Over 900 pages. It has been around for over 35 years and has been updated 10 times. Highly recommend this book.
