Emergency Food Storage & Survival Handbook
on 14 February 2010
If you are just starting out on the Prep. band wagon then this book will cover, in detail, most of what you want to know.
It is not full to the gills with information but it runs close. It allows you to help yourselves by using this book as a tool rather than a coffee table read. If you could get it in hardback then that would be better still.
The book at the rear has hints and recipies for the stuff you will need to cook with. It has lists galore that you add to, so to keep it clean you will soon be transfering the details over to a spreadsheet on the pc to simplify things.
It covers most things you need to get moving. It wont cover farming, as it is not that kind of book. The idea is to set you up for the long term haul. The author, Peggy Layton, is from the US, and it is so much easier for those across the pond to do as she is suggesting. Here in the UK we have to do our homework for those suplies that she is reommending. But not impossable, and now much easier to do with this book.
In a nutshell its about storage of the foods and liquids, and how to go about keeping them stable.
It covers a simple 72 hr kit bag too.
It does not cover all things, like how to cook using a dutch oven in full, but even it tells you that cooking in one of those is an art in itself, and for that you need to buy a book to do it justice. So the book has its limitations, but you are lft knowing what they are and where to go from here.
Get it. Worth evey penny.
