The Male Herbal: The Definitive Health Care Book for Men and Boys
1.  The Male Herbal: The Definitive Health Care Book for Men and Boys by James Green
The list author says:
  "Every man should have this book in his home library.  Quite often, men are the forgotten sex when it comes to herbal care, so you don't see many books out there for the boys.  This one is essential!"

Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War Stories from the Local Food Front
3.  Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War Stories from the Local Food Front by Joel Salatin
The list author says:
  "This book is a must-read if you're interested in local food movements and economies.  Salatin has no use for anyone in government and takes swipes at both sides of the aisle.  The vague generalizations about liberals and conservatives can be distracting.  Get past it, though, so you can further understand why it's so difficult to get clean, properly fed animals on our plates."

The Splendid Grain
5.  The Splendid Grain by Rebecca Wood
The list author says:
  "A lot of people will come for the recipes, but the vignettes about the grains themselves are wonderful, informative reading.  Grains have nuance and are exceptional nutrient sources, but we don't seem to possess a lot of understanding about what is out there.  It's not all wheat flour and white rice!"

Spirit of the Shuar: Wisdom from the Last Unconquered People of the Amazon
8.  Spirit of the Shuar: Wisdom from the Last Unconquered People of the Amazon by John Perkins
The list author says:
  "We can lose a lot with unchecked progress, so John Perkins decided to record the wisdom about life and living from the Shuar people of Central America.  I found this to be a truly inspirational book as I got lost in another world, where people persevere to live their traditions despite great pressure from commercial and governmental interference."
