About the Author
Anita Bailey has a diverse and unique background – starting with arts and literature, then to alternative health care such as reflexology and herbal remedies, through commercial livestock raising sheep and goats, then organic homesteading, and now to a cow-calf operation. Along the way, her family lived without electricity for two years. She became a registered nurse, then a Master’s level nurse practitioner working in primary care and urgent care for two decades, and earned her Doctorate in the field. Between canning and preserving the various foods grown in a large garden and acquiring her SCUBA card, she trained and utilized dogs of different breeds for search and rescue operations, and completed a second Master’s degree in Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management. She’s the author of hundreds of articles on small farming, peer-reviewed scholarly works in Alzheimer’s and nursing research, and popular how-to books writing as Anita Evangelista. She is married and living the dream in the rural Ozarks. This is her fourteenth book.

Recommended starting point. If you know how many acres it takes to feed two people with enough food variety to prevent scurvy and promote health then skip it. If you can live off collected & stored water then skip that part. If you know how to grow wheat, thresh it, grind it and make bread and beer without electricity or going to a store then skip that section. If you know how to rotate breads of chickens, pigs and cows to prevent inbreeding in the coming years then skip that section.
I did not have good answers. While my implementation is different, the book helped me pick up where experienced people leave off.
Outstanding tome. The breadth of material covered is as close to comprehensive as one volume could be.
Direct, no-nonsense, no fluff, no ego, highest recommendation.
I'm buying a copy for my daughter and her family okay?

There's no sugar coating from Anita, this will hit you hard, as it should. If/when Cold Times arrive, you'll either be prepared or tomorrow's fertilizer.
