Friday's Thoughts and Other Stuff (Thinking)

Dear Preppers and Survivalists,

Last week, I listed some fictional books that might help you and your family to get prepared for the tough times ahead.

Well, ...

These types of books are books that deal in facts. They provide information that, to a certain extent, have been tested, by the author. Of course, they probably cover every subject that you might be interested in.

Take, ... Gardening.

* The Backyard Homestead: Produce all the food you need on just a quarter acre! (2009) by Carleen Madigan
* All New Square Foot Gardening, 3rd Edition (2018) by Mel Bartholomew
* Rodale's Ultimate Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening: The Indispensable Green Resource for Every Gardener (2018)by Deborah L. Martin

Or, ... Blacksmithing
* The Art of Blacksmithing by Alex Bealer

* A Blacksmithing Primer by Randy McDaniel

* Professional Smithing by Donald Streeter
How about, ... Cooking
Cooking with Food Storage Ingredients (unk) compiled by Adrie J. Roberts

Cooking with Food Storage Ingredients: Dry Beans (unk) Melanie Jewkes and Adrie Roberts

And, ...

Of course, the list of subjects is unless, like raising goats, building sheds, building a photovoltaic system, medical subject, shooting, warfare, and ...

One place is Backwoods Home. They have many different books and anthologies of their magazine.

Another is Storey Publishing. They also have many different books on a multiple of subjects.

Sad to say, Rodale Press is no longer in operations. They were bought up by Hearst Publishing, in 2017. There is good news, though, places like Thrift Books still has some of Rodale's organic gardening books, in stock, so does Amazon, but you're going to have to wade through similar books.

Another source is these United States' Army. The General Dennis J. Reimer Training and Doctrine Digital Library (RDL), now called the Army Doctrine and Training Digital Library, has many, many, many different military manuals on a variety of subject. The U.S. Marine Corps has also has many military manuals, on-line. The same goes for these United States' Air Force, such as ...

AF Handbook 10-644: SERE Operations

MCTP 3-01A: Scouting and Patrolling

and, ...

Sorry, I have to go.
