Well, I got a copy of "When There is No FEMA" By Richard B. Bryant.
It is $36 for shipping and all on NoFEMA.com
And it's $28.80 on Amazon
, and eligible for Prime shipping.
I read the book cover to cover 3 times (and only seizured out and forgot it once) and it is actually quite a handy book. It is designed for the starter prepper, but even an experienced prepper will glean knowledge from it.
The book starts out by giving you a quick rundown of all the terms and phrases used in the book, as well as points out there will be no references to zombie crap. Automatic +1 by my count.
Then the Author gets right into it. Chapters on how to start assembling stockpiles quickly, planning on what to do in disaster times (loved that chapter, pencil marks all through it), water gathering and purifying chapter with a LOVELY water filter blueprint, food, comms, fuel, hygiene, first aid, fitness, defense, farming, and a LOT more are covered.
Now, the book is not designed to be the ONLY book on the shelf, but to give you a wide range of information in one book. The farming chapter, for example, gives a great deal of information but also recommends other books on agriculture. The First aid section has basic info, but also recommends other first aid books and taking first aid courses.
The section on building a LONG TERM survival community is something I read at least ten times. I love it. It mirrors a plan i have on my shelf almost exactly, and gives me new ideas. If anyone is looking for a long term plan, check this one out and glean ideas from it. Now, there is a few ideas with the plan i don't like, but that is understandable that now everyone would. Adjust your plan according to your people.
Overall, this book covers a wide range of topics and gives you enough information to get started in each subject. Like i said before, this book is best for the beginning prepper, so recommend it for those who have not started prepping or who have just started, but you can also learn a thing or two yourself in the process.
