How to make sure your home is secure. Food storage and preparation. Water storage and purification. Hygiene. First Aid. Communications. It is written to help you as a new prepper get started.

An American Feast: Six Memorable Thanksgiving (The Thomas Fleming Library)
"Here, from New York Times bestseller historian and novelist Thomas Fleming is the story of six memorable Thanksgivings - from the first with the Pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts, to the sixth celebrated in England’s Westminster Abbey." Originally from from This Week magazine, November 22, 1964. And from review: "Fleming's attempt to place a celebration of Thanksgiving in the middle of crisis events, thereby showing how the celebrants approach to being thankful for their blessings, heightens his narrative. By grounding the work in actual history, he avoids sentimentality, and unites present day readers with the cloud of witnesses who experienced difficult times and responded by showing gratitude."

Nature Survival, War, and other Hardship

Her Name Will Be Faith
“Thirty years ago, the events depicted in this book were dismissed as impossible, because it could never happen. Now we know better. Hurricane Sandy proves that New York could by hit by a major storm, and Sandy’s strength never exceeded Category 2 (100 mph). Hurricane Faith is a Category 5 storm, with sustained winds of more than 150 mph, and gusts of far greater strength. Christopher Nicole and Diana Bachmann have created an unforgettable picture of the devastating forces that Nature can command, tracing in carefully researched detail the genesis of this ultimate storm from its inception off the coast of Africa to its terrifying climax. But it is also the story of the people attempting to live through it from the handsome, debonair weather expert, Richard Connors, who know what is coming but can find no one to believe him, to journalist Jo Donnelly, estranged wife of millionaire sportsman Michael Donnelly, whose relationship grows with the approach of the storm. But it also tells of the many others, rich and poor, caught up in events they do not understand and with which they cannot cope, until the devastating, heart-stopping climax as the storm strikes and the greatest city on earth is laid waste about them.”
Author “is a prolific British writer of over 200 novels and non-fiction books since 1957.”

The Voice of Thunder
“captures the experiences of two young Jewish girls who are trying to survive the 6-Day War. The novels importance stems from the fact that it raises awareness about a little known war, and the knowledge that Breen actually lived these experiences makes the work even more powerful.”

Politics, Terrorism, and Intrigue/Conspiracy

The Screen Conspiracy
“…The answer to Jack’s dilemma lies somewhere in the internet. If he is to survive, he will first need to uncover a conspiracy which runs right to the heart of the Senate. Then he needs to figure out what to do with that knowledge which has left a trail of murders in its wake.” Three’s a video trailer for the book on the author page. Screen Conspiracy video trailer

The Reluctant Terrorist: A Novel of the American Holocaust
“presents a plausible future in which the groundwork laid by the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, color-coded terror alerts and compromises on civil liberties blossoms against America's Jews.” Great reviews.

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

Virtually True
” The murder of a friend. Conspiracy on a global scale. A near-future, dystopic world run by corporations, where nothing is as it seems and everything is part of something else. Technology and everyday life are inseparable, and information is a weapon that can save your life--or kill you.”

America Expects Every Man Will Do His Duty
“World War Three has ripped apart the world, nuclear warfare obliterating all infrastructure and technology. Those that are cursed with living must struggle and fight to bring about the Revival, the renewal of Earth That Was. One nation has thrown away their chance at Revival, seeking instead to conquer. France, lusting for glory, has unleashed warships of another age that have swept the oceans clean. England is in her sights, with America soon to follow.”

From Hell to Heaven
“an apocalyptic vision of what will happen if we continue on our present course.“
