About the Author

Peggy Layton (Author) doesn't even know what she is talking about. This book talks about preparing for an emergency, but offers no information on HOW to properly prepare, store food, or what you will need. HALF the book are COMPLEX RECIPES you ARE NOT going to cook on a fire. If the disaster you face leaves the lights, heat, and transportation infrastructure unaffected, you'll probably still be in trouble with this manual. She doesn't even talk about rotating the water supply, water storage requirements or collection methods.
The content is vague and the storage information for food is flat out WRONG. Canned goods can last 50 years, NOT 2 YEARS as the book flatly says. I can leave a steak on my counter top for two years, and with proper prep it would still be good! It all depend on the water content, sugars, preparation, and container used. She actually advices the WRONG FOOD, choosing items with high fructose and large water contents.
It is all bad with this one.
I was also looking for for ideas on how and where to store all of the supplies suggested. We live in a large house but unless I am willing to put the shelves pictured in the book in my living room, it offered little help. There were plenty of check lists provided and some recipes. But in glancing over the recipes, I noticed one for sweetened condensed milk that didn't specify quantity of sugar when the directions clearly indicated it was to be used.
I just do not think this book gave me much new information as a resource tool.
