INTERNET GUIDE TO SURVIVAL AND SELF-RELIANCE
More Than 300 Web Sites to Help You Live Better, Live Cheaper, and Survive When Things Get Tough
by Rich Gray
You could spend weeks online and not come up with half of the proven techniques and fascinating examples of the do-it-yourself life that are found in this innovative guide. The aim of this book is to wade through the chaos of the Internet and pinpoint those resources that are the absolute best in the areas of survivalism and self-reliance. Besides describing the highlights and unique features of each site, the author has created a special Web site that links to each one so that you won’t have to type lengthy URLs to reach your destination. Plus, these links will be updated frequently to make sure they are live and that the very latest information is included – it’s like getting a revised and updated edition of the book automatically.
While many books teach hard-core survival skills, they ignore the importance of the quality-of-life issues that face people cut off from access to stores and utilities for lengthy periods (whether it’s because of an emergency or by choice). Learn how to provide for food, water, shelter and defense; grow and preserve fruits and vegetables; harvest wild foods; make booze; craft fishing nets, candles and pottery; build and repair electrical and mechanical devices; harness solar, wind and hydro power; save money on just about everything; set up an emergency communications network and much more.
Whether you’d just like to build a backyard geodesic dome for the kids, tinker with solar cells and biodiesel, or build a log cabin in the woods and live completely off the grid, this book will spark your imagination and provide you with hours of enjoyment. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, 224 pp.
