I've been looking online recently for a good paperback book that has lots of charts/graphs/photos on Permaculture. I'm looking for a Go-To book source that everyone uses and knows about. I'm not looking for obscure or advanced technics, but a good primer. My ideal resource would also cover the basics from what to look for in the land for the best results, to getting water management under control first, and then progress on how to build the resources for self-sufficient living.

This is the permaculture bible, also referred to as the "Big Black Book". It covers the basis of permaculture, the philosophy, the ethics, and the design concepts. It also touches on the climatic factors, trees, water, soil, earth works, and aquaculture

Thanks Anne! I'll definitely give this one a look and add it to my growing library. I've been into permaculture since the mid 2000s, but now going back to the basics, as I intend to make it a part of my life and future career choice.
