I have an hour commute each day and would like to listen to audiobooks on anything related to permaculture, homesteading, etc. Can you recommend books that are available as audiobooks?

I listen to a lot of podcasts (download at home, load onto a device) like permaculture voices, survival podcast, radical personal finance.

I did listen to a couple good audio books that my library had. The world without us was one. Don't remember the others though.

I've been looking for this type of audio book too but permaculture is kind of visual so not much is available in audio format.

1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus was good but only part 3 was permaculture-like.

There are many youtube videos that would work as good permaculture "audiobooks."

This is one, I think:


Download it and listen while commuting.

Also, I was able to "borrow" this from our public library via an online site.
