Has anyone read this, looking to get started and this was the only thing I could find at the book store. Was only 20.00 bucks at borders, reviews seem positive as well.

Since you are just starting out I would hold off buying books until you nail down the basics. There is enough free info on the net to get you started.


1) Listening to Katrina

http://www.theplacewi...­

The site reads a preppers introductory course. He even has wookbooks.


2) Captain Dave's Survival Guide

http://www.captaindav...­

A little deeper than the previous site.


3) Survival Blog

http://survivalblog.c...­

For drilling down on a topic use the search box at upper right of page.


4) Get the book thru inter-library loan and after reading then make a buy decision.

I bought it and several others at the same time. I was really disappointed with it. It's ok if you take the Greatful dead approach to prepping and survival. Much better books out there. James Wesley Rawles has several. I have them and have read most of them several times. Also, James Talmage Stevens has Making the best of basics a family Preparedness handbook but get the new version it was revised in Sept of 2010. Another site is the LDS or provident website for Mormons great information on preparing, skills and stuff you will need (outside of defense)

I'm reading a fascinating book titled Cured: Salted-Spiced-Dried-Smoked-Potted-Pickle­d-Raw, Timeless Techniques for Enhancing Meat, Fish, Fruit & vegetables, by Lindy Wildsmith right now. I would recommend it as a good book for ambitious food prepper. It not only gives the history of each preservation technique, but shows how to incorporate them and gives plenty of recipes. While I haven't used any of them from this book specifically just yet--still reading--I have used many similar in the past. I've found they're not that hard to do and usually delicious...!

Enjoy,
