About the Author

M.D. Creekmore is one of America's foremost experts on survival, emergency preparedness, and self-reliance. He has dedicated his life to learning the skills needed to stay alive in an increasingly dangerous world. Since its inception in 2007, his blog ( www.thesurvivalistblog.net ) has grown into one of the most popular preparedness sites on the Web. A few years ago, he got sick of being another rat in the rat race, so he bought two acres of land off the grid for $2,000 and parked a 26-foot travel trailer on it—this is now his full-time home and survival retreat. He is a black belt in Shotokan karate, gunsmith, survivalist, homesteader, and all-around nice guy.


More About the Author

MD Creekmore, is a full-time survival author, blog writer, emergency preparedness consultant and author of "31 Days to Survival" and "The Dirt Cheap Survival Retreat" both published by Paladin Press. His free survival blog site "TheSurvivalistBlog.Net" has more than 3,500 articles published on a multitude of survival and self-reliance topics.

Over the years he has studied all facets of survivalism learning what works and, more importantly, what does not work! His goal is to show you how to prepare using his vast resources and personal experience with helpful survival tips, guides and checklists - focusing on prepping with a very modest budget.

You may find other preparedness sites giving the impression that you need fancy Freeze Dried Foods, a massive gun collection, a Hummer equipped with a gun turret and a 50 acre retreat secluded in some remote mountain top of Idaho. Although this may seem attractive on some level, it is not possible for the average Joe & Jane plus, nothing could be further from the truth!

It is M.D. Creekmore's firm belief and conviction, backed with life experience that you can be practical, live efficiently well within your means and take positive, incremental steps towards preparedness success - all with minimal finances. Let M.D. Creekmore show you how you can do it...

This is a sensible plan for prepping. The book is divided into 31 projects designed to get your family ready for things like natural disasters, job loss and other real-world hardships. The author is right to point out that you don't have to make six figures to get your family better prepared. All you need is some direction. And this book provides good direction.

The projects include obvious things like how to purify water, how to build a food storage, how to put together a bug out bag, and how to build snares and traps. But the projects also include areas of prepping that the beginner may not have considered, such as taking a CPR and first-aid class, getting fit so you can carry your bug out bag and getting dental and medical checkups. What I liked best about the book is the sensible suggestions for getting your spouse on board with prepping.

The author, M.D. Creekmore, is keenly aware that preppers come from all economic backgrounds. He gives suggestions for high income and middle class individuals as well as folks who are on a fixed income. The positive news is that each of us can get better prepared regardless of our financial resources. If you buy this book and do the work, you will honestly be able to say that you are better prepared today than you were yesterday. If you are serious about the safety and well being of your family, whether you are a beginner or a long-time prepper, this is a book you will not want to miss.

As other reviewers have already mentioned, this book contains a lot of good information on survival prepping. So I'm not going to reiterate all of that in this review.

What I do want to highlight is the one thing that was immediately apparent to me while skimming through the book. This is the ONLY book I've read thus far that breaks down lists of things to acquire for each various kit/stockpile/etc that doesn't seem to assume everyone has a seemingly unlimited budget.

I am fortunate in that I do have a pretty decent income, but even so I really appreciate the fact that for several, if not all, of these lists there are variations of each for different budgets. This alone is a great reason to buy the book.

Beyond that though, another good reason to buy this book is that it breaks things down into small manageable chunks. Despite the title, it would be unrealistic to think by the end of a month of following along the steps in this book you'll have all of the items and knowledge you need to survive the unforeseen emergency situation. However, it will get you organized, and I believe help prioritize your prepping and buying habits so that you spend less time studying and preparing to start preparing -- and more time doing and actually preparing.

Procrastination has always been one of my weaknesses, but having things laid out in the way this book does so, will help me do an end run around my procrastination and focus on necessary items to address. Additionally, it will help me stay focused on each task so that I don't end up running in circles never sure if I've accomplished everything I should have.

This a great book covering everything from assessing your skills, binder for information if electronics go down, storing food, solar cookers, 3 day kits, first aid, adding to your preps, shopping without breaking the bank, getting family on board, gardening, bug out bags, and more than I can put here. It is great information for the new prepper or the person who's been doing it their whole life. Its an asset to my library!

Being an old reader of The survivalist blog i went and bought the book. I was severely disapointed in the quality of this book. I truly felt ripped off. I am by no means an expert prepper, however a good portion of this book is going to this website and reading that book. My wife who is totally new to prepping and a any form of prepardness only learned 2 or 3 things from this book literally. It almost feels like the author M.D. Creekmore took a lesson from James Rawles (another prepper with a website and author of survivalist books.) on how to make crappy books. If you have internet and sound. Go to youtube and look up southernprepper1, Maine Prepper, and Engineer 775. and patriot nurse You can learn ALOT more from just those four in a couple of hours than you could from reading this book from cover to cover. and you have subject matter experts that are volunteering their time to teach you not make you pay for a terrible book and then tell you to get more information elsewhere. If you really want a book on prepping i would suggest Prepardness Now by Aton Edwards.

From the author that brought you Dirt-Cheap Survival Retreat: One Man's Solution, MD Creekmore has done it again. This book will teach you how you can be prepped and ready for most problems and disasters in as little as a month. Creekmore shows you how to assess your current skills and strengths, and gets you to explore where you may be lacking in skills and prep.

I've seen too many people who thought having a bit of food put back for an emergency is all they need to do, while that is a good thing to do, if you really want to survive, you are going to need to round out your preps, and that is more than food and water.

Survival, prepping, those are big buzz words right now in the era of reality TV shows, if you have watched very many of them, then you know that most of the people featured in those shows run the gamut from the outright silly, to the delusional nutter who probably has gone off their meds. You certainly cannot use most of what you "learn" from these shows to prep in real life. You need real instructions, you need a clear and concise guide book to take you from where you are right now, to someone who is ready for nearly any disaster, big or small. And you don't have to go to extremes to do it.

This is where Creekmore's book "31 Days to Survival" comes in. This book breaks it down into small, easy to digest steps that can be done by most everyone. Even if you are on a tight budget, you can still do this, Creekmore shows you how. He discusses things you might not think of as prepping for survival, things like your health, the healthier you are, the more likely you are to get through tough times.
