It is a chilly 48 degrees here on the coast. The water is gone and things are drying up.
I received this as a gift the other day:
I had this on my wish list knowing that it was mostly about food. It covers the aspect of storing food very thoroughly and I will stress again, after reading this book and a couple of others to store what your family will eat. It's easy to get lost in how much per person an food tables but it won't work if your family won't eat it.
This book has smaller sections about growing and raising your own food (including sprouting), preserving food, and kitchen equipment. It has smaller chapters on terrorism, home security, lists of tools etc. to have on hand, communications, what to have in your library, etc.
All and all I think it's a useful book to have. I enjoyed it and will keep it to add to my library. I do have a word of caution..after doing a search of the book after I received and read it, some message boards cautioned against ordering direct from the author. My mom sent this from amazon so I have no such claim but you might want to order it from a bookstore.
