What are the chances of the regulars here who have a good collection of OOP
books scanning some?

Perhaps someone could host a collection of scanned material so that everyone
who is interested could have access to it?

Or maybe Bax still has room on his FTP site?


I've found several out-of-print books on
www.addall.com
Some authors don't like having their books online. I know Duncan Long has told
people to remove his material from their sites.

The one book I recommend for anyone interested in survival is Famine & Survival
in the United States, by Howard Ruff. It's the best single source I've seen on
the subject of food storage.


Noah, I hope you're kidding. Even Ruff said his book was awful.
Fortunately, it's long out of print and hard to find now.

Unfortunately, it was one of the first books on the subject I ever
came across.

Now, three books on food storage (besides other topics) that I do
recommend besides my own a

"Making the Best of Basics" by James Stevens. More list oriented, but
a lot of very good information in there.

"Cookin' With Food Storage" by Vickie Tate. Mainly recipes, but she
manages to stuff good storage information in as well.

"Crisis Preparedness Handbook" by Jack Spigarelli. An updated second
edition came out in 2002. A lot more besides food storage. This one
has been mighty hard to come by in the past which has always struck me
as curious given the amount of good information he's got. Spent
months looking, but never was able to find a copy of the first
edition, a friend photocopied a library copy for me.

.....Alan.

What ever happened to the "Boy Scout Hand Book" of the thirties? Today it's
filled with all this global warming & diversity crap!

If your over 21 and do good things it looks good on your
resume, but over 50 it looks good on your obituary.
