Basic Survival – A beginner’s guide is my first hardback book, It is larger than all my other titles, 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 out 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 smart 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.
I have a lot of experience dealing with disasters of all kinds, I have worked in shelters and know what goes on behind the scenes. I take that knowledge to keep my family out of emergency shelters.
I am especially proud as James Wesley Rawles of SurvivalBlog wrote the introduction. I have long been a reader of his blog and learn learn something new almost weekly.
I updated the David’s Books Page so check that page out as well.
