Excerpt from the recently released Survivalist Family by Joe Fox:

Just what IS a "survivalist family"?

I suppose some people shudder at the very thought! Watch enough television and you'll see that the media's version of a survivalist family is a dirty, ignorant clan living in a remote ramshackle log cabin. It will consist of a fat, bearded, camouflage-wearing, tobacco chewing, over domineering misogynist running roughshod over his cowering mouse of a wife who is trying to raise filthy little barefoot ragamuffins who run around spouting racist right-wing propaganda they picked up from "Pa".

Well, who would want to read about THAT? Certainly not you. Instead of "survivalist family" we could say "prepared family" or talk about "family preparedness" but that is just so politically correct it makes me gag. Just because the media don't like survivalists and therefore vilify them does not mean we have to change our language. For our purposes, the Survivalist Family is defined as, "A multi-generational group of people living in one house (usually consisting of a father, mother and their offspring) who take positive steps as a cohesive group to prepare for possible future negative situations and circumstances beyond their control."

We say "multi-generational" because if it's a man and a woman they are really a couple - not a family in the truest sense of the word. It's actually easier for a couple to prepare than a family. Just because a family in our definition usually consists of a father, mother and children does not mean that a single mom with two boys is not a family - they are. I said "usually". So do not get hung up on people - focus on what they do. They take positive steps to prepare as a group for future bad times.

Where do Survivalist Families live? Everywhere - in city apartments, in suburban split-levels, in country farm houses and yes, even in remote log cabins surrounded by deep, dark woods.

What kinds of jobs do Mom and Dad have? Every kind imaginable - Dad could be senior geologist for the Department of Agriculture, a grocer, a mechanic, or a computer programmer. Mom could be a nuclear scientist, a secretary or a stay-at-home-mom.

In a nutshell - they are average, every-day American families who have taken the decision to prepare for emergencies. The level to which they prepare varies greatly and is not always obvious. You probably have some Survivalist Families in your neighborhood and do not even realize it.

Most are not very forthcoming about their preparations. One reason is fear of being labeled a "survivalist" and having friends and neighbors think them kooky. Some fear that when bad times come, their family could be at risk if others knew of their preparations. Someone who failed to prepare may try to take what they have or the government may requisition their supplies or any of a myriad of other reasons.

I can't wait to get my hands on this book. I had the privilege of of looking at a digital copy of this book and it is packed with useful information. The thing I like about it most is that it is practical and Joe keeps the book practical and useful and doesn't "get weird". I love the book, it is perfect and is one of those books that should be in anyone library that is serious about being prepared for the very clear probability of what our future will bring. So many possible things and this books covers all the possibilities that come to mind. Thank you Joe great book. Hope you sell a million.

Love the picture!

Three guns, no food.

No food?
No food?!!
C'mon now - there are two buckets of food and a case of MREs. Plus I suspect the BoBs contained food as did the Tote bin.

It is an "interesting" picture though, isn't it? :)

How to purchase the book if I am outside the USA? I'm in Ukraine. How much the shipment cost is expected to be?

Alex,
Send me an email ( joe@vikingpreparedness.com ) with your address and I'll check on postage.

Because you are the first customer from Ukraine I'll cover $5 of additional postage (I'll pay the first $5 of any additional postage) - that will likely cover it.
