Book Description

No one knows WHAT it will be.

It could be a natural disaster or a medical pandemic. Financial system collapse or bioterrorism. Governmental shutdowns or societal breakdowns. The media is full of possible threats, and they seem to be coming at us from all sides these days.

No one knows WHEN it will be.

It might be today, or tomorrow. Next week or next month. Next year ... or maybe never.

But do you want to take a chance on "maybe never"?

It pays to be prepared. "Prepare for the worst, pray for the best," as the saying goes. And if there ever was a time to prepare for the worst, NOW is that time.

Survival prepping is about preparing for the worst. It's about making sure you and your family are safe, no matter what the world throws at you.

This guide on "Hunkering Down" focuses on a scenario that would force you to stay in your home - a natural disaster which prevents evacuation. During a natural disaster, you might need to survive for a few days or a few weeks in your home before you can leave or before help arrives - if it ever does arrive!

But don't let the "natural disaster" part of the title fool you. You might hunker down for any number of reasons. No matter what happens that requires you to "bug in" (the opposite of "bug out" or evacuating), this guide can get you started in the right direction.

This book contains easy-to-read, direct, to-the-point chapters on the essentials of hunkering down. 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. It's for us "regular folk" who want to make sure we are prepared. If you are ready to take those first few steps on the prepper path, this book will help you ensure your family survives, and maybe even thrives, should a disaster strike.

Are you are uncertain about what you need to hunker down? Does even the thought of hunkering down scare you? This book can help.

Together, we can put you on the right path to removing that fear and uncertainty. In a short time, we can get you and your family ready to hunker down no matter what disaster or catastrophe happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hunkering: A Good Start December 4, 2012
By Carl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hunkering is the first of three (including Get Out of Dodge, and Sealing Yourself) books by Adams that discusses the fundamentals of prepping for whatever. All three books are inexpensive, easy, quick reads that provide a wealth of information if you've not yet considered prepping. Everyone's situation is different: city, town, rural, natural/manmade disaster probability, proximity to floods, etc., but everyone should consider how to protect themselves, their property and family in case of a disaster situation of any kind. These three books will get you started on easy ways to acquire and store food, water, and essentials needed for riding out a disaster situation, whether natural, manmade, political or financial. Even if you're an experienced prepper there's likely something you hadn't thought of. Considering the price of all three, it's a no-brainer: Buy All Three... I'll be saving my Kindle-PC versions for later reference!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to know! November 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good little book! I have just started researching on becoming a survivalist and I learned quite a bit from this book about how to prepare for a crisis. I especially like that the author provides a checklist to print out with all the supplies one might need to be prepared for just about anything. There are specifics on food, water purification, first aid, communication, protection, etc. Not a long read and seems to cover all the basics. There were no specific companies listed to obtain some items that I do not have, such as MREs, a distilling flask, quicklime and a honey bucket, but I am sure can find whatever I need somewhere on the internet. If anyone can help me out with specifics, please reply.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Overview and Checklist November 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jason Ryder Adams provides a nice overview for preparing for a natural disaster which is the emphasis of his work. Of course, the philosophy fits for sociopolitical disasters as well.

The checklist in the back of the book creates a good plumb line for people who want to evaluate their current preparations.

4.0 out of 5 stars What to do if you can't leave. November 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm building a resource library for recipes, prepping because we live on the coast and often have high winds, power outages, etc. It's also hard to grow a garden due to our climate so doing as much research as I can! Options for how to stay put during those situations and a great resource.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic Information December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hunkering Down: Prepping to Survive in Your Home During a Natural by Jason Ryder Adams discusses what to do when you are forced to stay in your home and leaving is not a possibility. The book starts off with a list of natural disasters that you may encounter such as floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, and hailstorms. Then methods to fortify your home are discussed that can protect you from these disasters. This is very basic information and it does not teach you how to specifically perform the tasks. Other topics include: water, purifying water, food, hygiene, first aid kit, communications, children, and pets. A lot of different topics are covered but being that this is a short book they are covered very briefly and lack a significant amount of detail.

Overall Assessment:

Hunkering Down: Prepping to Survive in Your Home During a Natural by Jason Ryder Adams is a very basic book geared towards those who are new to preparing for natural disasters. This provided information is very rudimentary and will require further research to implement some of the ideas such as the topic of fortifying your home. Most, if not all, of the information presented in this book is readily available on the internet.

By RichH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with helpful tips and advice on how we can survive during times of natural disasters. Although these things may never happen to us, it is better if we anticipate them. Being prepared is way better than being sorry. I even told my family and friends about this Kindle book beause I think we should be prepared. This book teaches us how to hunker down and survive in the comfort of our own home.

This is a good book for learning the basics about emergency preparedness. For 99 cents there is some very good info and checklists and I really like the section for preparing a first aid kit. I am going to read his other two books now.

More About the Author

Jason Ryder Adams is the author of three books on survival prepping.

"Survival preppers are no longer weird nutcases living outside of society," says Jason.

"We're normal people. We're your friends, your co-workers, and your neighbors. It's just that we're concerned for ourselves and for our families, and want to make sure that we're prepared no matter what the world throws at us."

Jason emphasizes a practical, down-to-earth approach to prepping.

"Let's face it, most people don't prep, and those that want to prep are overwhelmed by all the details involved. You start talking to someone new to prepping, and once you start in on the details, you see their eyes start to glaze over and their mouth drops and their face goes blank. It's just too overwhelming to the new prepper."

"I try to break down prepping into simple steps, and make it as easy as possible for the new prepper to get started. After all, a little prepping is better than no prepping. And once people take those first few steps, they'll soon see that prepping isn't all that hard. And it will give them the confidence to go from being a little prepared to being fully prepared."

"If I had only one wish for you and for all of my readers, it's that they NEVER have to use what I write about. But these days, with everything going on in the world, I don't think that will happen. All of us are likely to face some sort of disaster at some point - whether it's natural or man-made. So I want you to be ready when it happens."

"Thank you as always for taking the time to read my books. I wish you and your family a healthy, happy, safe life."
