The prudent person prepares. He saves money, invests wisely, carries medical and life insurance, subscribes to a retirement plan, draws up a will. For normal living, all this is important.
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.

This is the Grandmother of all books that started the trend of "the basic four." An honest search for foods that are adaptable, long term storeable and nutritional. Includes over 100 recepies for the use of these basics. Extends itself to cover 40 additional foods for storage. An excellent primer for beginners.

This book is truly one of the best in my collection of preparedness, recipes, and wheat usage! It's amazing what one can do with 4 simple ingredients without suffering from appetite fatigue, excessive work, and just plain boredom. This gal knew her stuff 30 years ago and it's still relevant today.

This is the book that got me started prepping back in the 70's. It's limited to the four foods, but it will keep a family alive and going for quite a while. It will get boring quickly though! It's based on the Morman's one year food storage plan. This is where everyone should start and add to as finances permit. Lots of recipes to try out. Esther Dickey is definitely "Old School" but the book is a classic. Yes, there are a horde of food prepping books out there, but this is the original and a "must have".

The book is very well written. The author provides clear and easy to follow recipes for lots of god tasting foods that can be made from shelf stable products. I found that of the recipes I have tried so far they all came out exatcly as the author describes.
My kids loved the ice cream recipe! This is a great addition to anyone's survival/camping gear.

I got the name of this book from Cody Lundin's book,"When All Hell Breaks Loose".
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.
