PREPPER'S LONG-TERM SURVIVAL GUIDE

The deadly danger of disasters doesn't end when the waters recede or the earth stops shaking; it has just begun. The Prepper's Long-Term Survival Guide goes beyond the basics of surviving in the immediate aftermath of catastrophe and teaches readers how to cope with the problems and challenges that can continue for weeks, months and even years.

Including everything from pre-disaster prepping tips to post-catastrophe instructions for making life easier on the whole family, the book is a bible for anyone who hopes to stay alive. Prepper's Long-Term Survival Guide balances hard-core planning (such as purifying water and building emergency food storage that doesn't require a power source) with simple ideas that can make all the difference (such as having portable solar panels to charge cell phones for vital communication and laptops for much-needed family entertainment).
