Reading about how others survived hardship is a great way to prepare to survive. The book Stories And Recipes of the Great Depression os a great resource to do just that.
This book is a continuing historical documentation of the impact the Depression Era had in the homes of those who struggled to keep their families together, body and soul.
It contains previously untold candid personal stories in the unique dialect of that time.
As a prepper I think it is a must read. Knowing other people survived hard times is a great way to realize you also can survive. Knowing HOW they did it makes it easier.
Like the video below from the popular YouTube channel “Cooking with Clara” this book also includes more of the original comfort-food recipes that sustained them.
This book is part of a larger series, and it is worth collecting and reading them all. I especially enjoyed the recipes of the Great Depression, but the stories were pretty cool also. From a historical perspective it documents our American history. More to the point it may help us survive the next Greater Depression.
That is important because in the 1930’s preparedness skills were commonplace. That is not the case now.
