Written by Environmentalist & Outdoor Survivalist, Matthew Stein


When hurricanes Katrina and Ike hit the Gulf Coast many discovered that they were not prepared for survival. More than 2-million families lost power, and in the weeks that followed, hundreds of thousands of families were still without power, phones and water, and despite FEMA's giant efforts, many were still suffering three and four months after the storms had passed. Would you know what to do if this disaster happened to you?

"This book is an indispensable basic manual for the real-life issues that await us in the decades to come. Those who read it, and pay attention to its treasure trove of practical wisdom, will enjoy a huge advantage as the cheap oil fiesta winds down and circumstances compel us to live differently." —James Howard Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency

“If you’ve been wondering about how to respond to the twin dangers of peak oil and global warming, one of your best choices would be to read this book.” — Greg Pahl, author of The Citizen-Powered Energy Handbook: Community Solutions to a Global Crisis
