Grow or Die
Where does food come from?
If you said "Wal-Mart", you're probably beyond help and can stop reading now. Go in peace and spend the remainder of your days in whatever fashion seems best to you.
If you said "from a farm" or, even better, "my back yard", I have the book for you.
I got a free copy of David the Good's Grow or Die as part of my cross-promotion with the publisher. That said, I'd buy this book in a heartbeat. So should every prepper and survivalist, plus anyone who'd like to continue eating if the grid goes down.
This is not a book for hobbyists interested only in growing flower gardens and decorative shrubs. Instead the author is writing for people with the foresight to start planning how they'll feed themselves and their families when, say, labor strikes, terrorist attacks, or natural disasters disrupt food shipments to Wal-Mart for an extended period of time.
In Grow or Die, David the Good provides all of the information you need to plan, till, fertilize, water, nurture, and harvest a garden capable of sustaining your family in a long-term crisis situation. He also covers the best ways to preserve and store uneaten produce after the harvest.
A comprehensive list of tools, an alphabetical crop catalog, and a handy quick start guide make Grow or Die an indispensable resource for getting your survival garden up and growing fast.
A super informative survival gardening book written in an engaging, funny style. Highly recommended for serious survivalists and general gardening fans alike.
If you prefer fictional apocalyptic scenarios, I also have a book for you--two, in fact. Even David the Good took time out from hoeing, making ponds out of hot tubs, and fertilizing crops with his own urine to read them. You can't ask for a better endorsement!
