Girlie, how far from Louisiana are you? I'll be coming to your place if disaster strikes! Great post & thanks for sharing. Are you planning a little emergency prep e-book of your own, including recipes? ;)

A great list! I will be looking into some of them soon.

I like the looks of Old Ways Rediscovered. Even the title says a lot, and sometimes it seems like we have to go back to some of those old ways.

Angie- I think this probably is my e-book.

Pat- Winter is sitting in now, so I'll have some time to pull a few of these off the bookself and read.

Joanne- That one is interesting. I've purchased it and it's on it's way to my house as I write this.
