About the Book

Twenty years ago, Making the Best of Basics -- Family Preparedness Handbook became the family preparedness bible for a generation. The '90s have brought their own litany of worries -- company downsizings, severe hurricanes and winter storms, flooding, government shutdowns -- that make in-home storage an attractive proposition again.The recently updated and expanded Ninth Edition of Making the Best of Basics is designed for the urban family. It offers a manageable and effective plan for accumulating, storing, and utilizing an in-home supply of food and other essentials to support a family in a near-normal manner for one year. Basics includes
-- recipes for using stored foods,
-- a section on common storage problems and solutions,
-- lists of sources for storage items,
-- charts to help you determine what and how much you need, as well as chapters on storing and using essentials such as water, wheat, fruits and vegetables, and fuel.
-- Over 350,000 copies of earlier editions sold.
-- This single volume tells you what to store, how to store it, and how to use it.
-- Basics' unique "Family Factor" makes determining storage quantities easy.
