Skills for Survival: How Families Can Prepare

Skills for Survival: How Families Can Prepare provides a different approach to emergency food availability, giving in-depth gardening and shelter information not commonly found elsewhere. The author goes back to pioneer survival techniques, extracting present-day solutions from pioneer situations when there were no modern conveniences such as electricity, piped-in water, air conditioners, etc. Her chapters deal with situations such as coping with extreme weather conditions, insect control, warding off frost, grinding grains, recognizing poisonous plants, preventing contamination and spoilage, keeping grains and other foods cool and dry, making health aids, nutrition requirements when food is scarce, even directions for birthing a baby. No matter what other emergency-prep books you have, you definitely need this one!
