But the preparation advocated in Esther Dickey's book is geared to a more elemental urge - the instinct for survival. Raising the warning voice that emergency conditions can be expected to arise - from unemployment, sickness, strikes, civil strife, famine, or war - the author urges families to prepare now, while there is still time, and tells us how. While touching on other aspects of survival preparation, Passport to Survival is predominantly concerned with food preparation, preservation and storage. With over 100 recipes and a multitude of other hints, it shows how the principal foods recommended for a survival diet-wheat, powdered milk, honey and salt may be used in normal times to provide experience for the cook and to supply the family with nourishing and appetizing meals. As a bonus, those meals turn out to be considerably less expensive than the customary American diet. A book with such a grim premise might be expected to be somber in tone. Not so with Passport to Survival. Filled with creative, cheerful thinking, it reflects the author's faith in the power of the human heart and will. Thus it is not only a reasoned warning of future difficulties but a ringing challenge to make physical and spiritual preparations to surmount them. This combination will make the book appeal to perceptive people everywhere.
My kids loved the ice cream recipe! This is a great addition to anyone's survival/camping gear.
The book is amazing! The author comes up with many creative suggestions for meals,
and how to store food. These two items alone are worth buying the book.
In a prolonged survival situation, the knowledge this book provides could
save your life.
