About the Author:

Matte Resist is the author of the zine Resist. He lives in Minneapolis, MN.

Review:

"In this Boy Scouts Guide for the Pending Apocalypse, Matte Resist penned one of the most fascinating and riveting how-to books I've ever read. Many punks and radicals preach a live-off-the-grid rant, but Matte shows how a family can make use of common items and opportunities to have a cheap, full and happy life. This book stands above piles of how-to drivel because of Matte's explanation of not just how, but why we should ride bikes, build musical instruments, and plant gardens. He's not raising a middle finger to the status quo; he's too busy with hammer and wrench in hand."  —Shane Speal, cigar box guitar historian/musician
