This is my first book, as a long time firearm instructor, I wanted to write a book that answered common questions new shooters ask.

It is designed to help a person decide if they want a handgun, what kind of handgun they need, and the basics of both shooting it and using it for self defense.

The information found within form the basis of any basic firearm course and will definitely give a new shooter the proper start.

52 Preppers Projects started the series, it came from my attempts to learn to prepare cheaply while building my skills.  I took projects from this website and enhanced the instructions while adding pictures.

The idea behind the book was to give weekly projects that build skill while building preparedness.

Like 52 Prepper Projects, this book involves weekly projects, however, it is deigned to be done with children to teach them how to work with their hands and brains as well as develop self-reliance.

One thing different in this book that the previous52 Projects work, is that at the end of each project talking points are given to teach why the project was chosen.

There is not enough land for every American to live a hunter/gatherer lifestyle, but understanding the uses of wild foods can definitely increase odds of survival during a large scale disaster.

Basic Survival: A Beginner’s Guide

Click Picture to Purchase

This is my first Hardback, and the pictures make me feel like its a coffee table book, but when I wrote it I included all the basics I learned starting oput as a prepper.

Don’t let the name fool you, this is not a wilderness survival handbook – it is a surviving emergencies handbook.  I believe in an all hazards approach to survival.  If you knew what kind of disaster would kill you a smart thing to do would just be to avoid that type of disaster.  Since no one knows what might happen to them, a spart person prepares to deal with all kinds of issues.

I take academic theory learned during my education as an Emergency Management Planner and add common sense skills learned by life as a prepper to bring you this book.
