Stumbled on this listing of books last night: Country Living Grain Mill - Cook Books

There may be some repeats here but a few caught my eye:
Preserving Food: without Freezing or Canning
Typical Books about Preserving garden produce nearly always assume that modern kitchen gardeners will boil or freeze their vegetables and fruits. Yet here is a book that goes back to the future- celebrating traditional but little-known French techniques for storing and preserving fresh edibles in ways that maximize flavor and nutrition.

Translated into English for the first time, this book deliberately ignores freezing and high-temperature canning in favor of methods that are superior because they are less costly and more energy-efficient. Tells how to use traditional techniques to preserve you food with salt, oil, sugar, alcohol, vinegar, drying and cold storage and lactic acid preservation.
Seet to Seed
This complete guide to seed-saving techniques covers 160 different vegetables and includes detailed instructions on how to grow, harvest, dry, clean and store your own seeds! 228 pages, b&w interior photos
Four Season Harvest
Keep on harvesting after summerís end! If you love the joys of eating home garden vegetables, but always thought those joys had to stop at the end of summer, this book is for you. Coleman shows how North American gardeners can raise a wide variety of traditional winter vegetables in backyard cold frames and plastic-covered tunnel greenhouses without supplementary heat. 234 pages b&w illustrations & color photos.
Actually, they all look decent.
