9781530010301: You Can Survive (The Very Worst Manmade and Natural Disasters): Volume 1: Survival Tactics; Guns & Ammo; Emergency Medicine; Dealing with Crime, Looting & Riots; Insurance and Lawyers

Whether you're concerned about localized disasters, government meltdown, or an end-of-civilization catastrophe, these three volumes explain how to survive the worst. Easy-to-read chapters offer information you'll find nowhere else. These practical instructions cover everything from dealing with the next super storm, to living through to a government collapse, to surviving terrorist attacks or nuclear exchanges. You'll find detailed, lifesaving plans such as how to feed your family (for just pennies a day), even if the stores are closed for months, how to heat your home if the gas and electricity are gone, and how to protect your loved ones from rioters and looters when the police are nowhere to be found. You'll also discover ways to minimize damage to your home and belongings before an earthquake, storm, or other natural disaster strikes, as well as what you must do after such events to quickly recover and remain safe. These manuals cover often-overlooked, life-and-death subjects. They also give you a realistic assessment of the best defensive firearms, ways to find food and water during an emergency (in both urban and rural settings), and how to improvise (as well as where to purchase) decontamination kits for countering chemical, biological, or even nuclear contamination. There are even tips for common medical emergencies as well as for dealing with the plagues that can appear in the aftermath of disasters. Jim Benson, former editor, American Survival Guide Magazine, had this to say about these manuals: "In my years of reading and looking over survival books, I consider You Can Survive to be the definitive how-to manual on survival. The scope, depth, and detail of its 24 chapters far surpasses anything else I've come across in this genre. As someone who’s worked with author Duncan Long for many years, I know his writings are the result of decades of study and experience in the survival field, combined with a hefty dose of common sense and practicality. While I've always said it's impossible to cover everything about survival in one book, You Can Survive comes pretty darn close!"

About the Author:

Duncan Long is one of the "granddaddies" of the survival movement, having started penning survival, gun, and how-to articles in the late 1970s for American Survival Guide, the Journal of American Civil Defense, and other publications. Over the years, he's continued to write on a variety of subjects, with articles appearing in Modern Survival magazine from 2004-2006. During this time, Long crossed paths with fellow survivalists and preppers including Cresson H. Kearney, Kurt Saxon, Bruce D. Clayton, and Jim Benson (with Long’s recollections of these figures detailed in Apocalypse Tomorrow, available from Delta Press). Working in the publishing industry for decades as a freelance writer/illustrator, Long has written over 60 technical books and how-to manuals (published by Paladin Press, Delta Press, Lyons Press/Globe Pequot, and other publishers). Some of his manuals have been purchased for the private libraries of the CIA, US Marines, FEMA, the FBI's FTU (Firearms Training Unit), and other government agencies. Excerpts from his books along with his technical drawings have even appeared in US Congressional hearings and US Congressional press handouts.
