The book's author, Angela Paskett, is a blogger, teacher, radio show host, prepper, and busy mom. She's also a food storage enthusiast who has been practicing what she preaches for more than fifteen years, according to her bio. The book initially caught my eye with its numerous charts, lists, and illustrations. After a careful read, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This book walks novice and expert preppers alike through easy-to-read tips, tricks, and procedures for stocking food in 72-hour kits, creating short-and long-term food supplies, storing water, canning food, packaging dry foods, staying organized, and using a food supply to feed a family. The book demystifies the realm of oxygen absorbers, desiccant, recycling food-grade buckets, and many of the other topics that leave the self-reliant crowd rushing to Google.
