A Classic On The Reading List

Whether you are just starting to prepare, or have been at this as "a way of life" for a while, you can certainly appreciate the Preparedness Manual set forth by The Church of Latter Day Saints. Better known as The Mormons, these folks have preparedness and long term food storage at the heart of their belief system. This is not the time or place to debate Mormon-ism... I'm just offering this link if you are interested.
The book, (which you can order from LDS for less than $10, or download for free below), starts off with a little evangelism... but at about page 15 you can begin to see these people have it going on.

Here is a sampling of the table of contents:
