Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond is Volume 1 Guiding Principles to welcome Rain into your Life and Landscape. Although it is written specifically for the arid southwest its principles and guidance can and should be applied to any home built today.

From the Back
This book enables you to assess your on-site resources (rainwater, topsoil, sun, plants, and more), gives you a diverse array of strategies to maximize their potential, and empowers you with guiding principles to create an integrated, multi-functional water-harvesting plan specific to your site and needs.

Clearly written with more than 150 illustrations, this volume helps bring your site to life, reduce your cost of living, dawn yourself and your community with skills of self reliance and cooperations, and create living air conditioners of vegetation growing beauty, food and wildlife habitat. Stories of people who are successfully welcoming rain into their life and landscape will invite you to do the same.
