About the Author

Gaye Levy grew up and attended school in the Greater Seattle area, graduating from the University of Washington. She spent many years as an executive in the telecommunications software industry and later as a CFO to emerging technology and service companies.

While still working in her chosen field, Gaye abandoned city life and moved to a serenely beautiful rural area on San Juan Island in NW Washington State. Recognizing the risks of being in a remote area served primarily by Washington State ferries, she soon realized that a disaster of any type, be it natural or man-made, would soon leave her community cut off from goods and supplies from the mainland for days or even weeks. As a result, she learned everything she could about living a preparedness lifestyle and began the process of acquiring goods and skills which would allow her and her family to survive on their own for an extended period of time and without the need for outside assistance.

Gaye teaches the principles of preparedness and a self-reliant lifestyle through emergency preparation and disaster planning at her website BackdoorSurvival.com. As a blogger, she shares her nuts-and-bolts knowledge and common sense perspective in a way which is non-intimidating, friendly and easy to understand.

Gaye’s emphasis is on prepping for the mainstream while doing so with compassion for others and optimism for a positive outcome, no matter what.

In her spare time, Gaye and her husband are avid ballroom dancers and enjoy hiking, kayaking, gardening and living life to the fullest along with their dog, Tucker, in their island home along the shores of San Juan Island in Washington State.

I had this book as a PDF and began to read it on-line. I found it so interesting that I printed out a copy and settled down on the living room sofa with it for an hour or so. It’s well written, very informative.

I was a bit disappointed that root cellaring was not mentioned. Everyone from my grandparent’s generation went into the winter with a bushel of potatoes, carrots, onions, and apples. Today, I do it myself. The stuff lasts for months. No plastic bags needed. No cooking needed; you can eat it raw if necessary. All that’s required is the corner of a back room for storage.

That being said, I like Gaye’s common-sense approach throughout and especially the fact she didn’t pitch a dietary religion du jour (brown rice, organic vegetables, veganism). I have enough daughters-in-law for that. I also appreciated that she didn’t wander off into the evils of the Federal Reserve System as survivalist books tend to do. Thank you, Gaye, for maintaining focus.

“The Prepper’s Guide to Food Storage” is an excellent supplement to the food storage literature already available. It approaches the topic from an urban prepper’s point of view (someone who works in town and buys food in a store) rather than country folk who grow food and store the surplus. But even for home gardeners it’s a great companion to “Root Cellaring” by Bubel and the “Kerr Home Canning and Freezing Book."

Overall, on a scale of one to ten, “The Prepper’s Guide” is a two thumbs up.......... Did I just mix my metaphors?

A great book that is not too long, not too short but the length is just right. i particularly liked the section where she describes the 20 most useful foods that are easy to find in the supermarket. Many books I have read on prepping said to 'get beans and store them' but never mentioned what kind of beans nor did they tell you how to prepare them in general. Gaye did! Not in any great detail but enough to get you started. The book is just chock full of good, useful information. I heartily recommend it Even if you are as old as me, you can still learn some things.

I found this book to be a quick read and a useful guide. Many people are aware that they need to do "something" to prepare
for emergencies and disasters, but they just don't know how to begin, especially when it comes to food. What kinds? How should I store it? Where should I store it?

Gaye Levy answers those questions giving some great ideas of what to store, normal items that we use in our everyday lives. While most of us have our own likes and dislikes, her 20 items of what to start storing is great for giving you ideas of what it would take to feed your family in an emergency situation. She takes it even further by helping you to develop a plan of what foods to store for your family.

I really like her tips of starting out slow and spending wisely. You don't want to break your family budget to do this, but you do want to have extra on hand for any emergency.

Her tips on food storage, finding space and the conditions needed for storage are good ones. She covers the common food storage mistakes that people make, and I think she covers it well and gives some very simple, practical advice that anyone can use.

I bought this book hoping to learn how to store various foods for long term storage. If that is what you are looking for too, save your money. This book only covers very basic info you can find all over the internet free.
It covers what is a mylar bag, oxygen absorber, etc. But nothing about how many cc's per size bag..really nothing specific in here at all.
This book advocates stocking up on food already packaged in stores (which of course expires) and that is why we are looking for food storage books to begin with right?
I got zero out of this book and bought the printed version and paid $15.00 but this information is all over the internet.
I fully expected information on how to prepare your own foods for bug out bags using dehydrator, canning, etc.
None of that was in here. Still looking for the perfect prepping food book. If you have a recommendation let me know!

I liked it. I live in south Florida and her ideas for foods to store were a great base line to help my family prepare for the next time we are without power for several weeks. Pretty good "Readers's Digest" summary. The author gave a pretty decent and affordable list of short term preparedness foods, as well as packaging ideas for longer term storage.

The Prepper's Guide to Food Storage covers everything you need to know to get started in your own food storage plan: it not only posts an actual list that you can take with you to the grocery store, but also offers helpful tips and reminders. We all live busy lives, and many of us don't want to have to deal with complicated charts and calculations on what to store. At the same time, many don't even have the space in which to store everything. The book makes it easy for anyone to get started.

I wish I had this book when I first got started my own food storage plan. There is a whole section on how to store food for long term storage as well as pitfalls to avoid. What you won't find is a lot of fluff - the book is concise, but jam packed with information. Whether you are just getting started or looking to supplement your current food storage, this book is highly recommended.
