Book Description via Goodreads:
Wow. This book is SO much more than I was anticipating. I was blown away, just like the zombies you'll slay am I right?
This book is one part zombie prepper, one part nature survivalist, and one part gourmet. If you are fighting for your life in a post-apocalyptic world, this is one book you'll want to have in your prep kit.
I learned so much it's insane. Wilson has you covered for every type of zombie scenario. Whether you need to forage for your own food, start a fire, trap your own animals, or loot for supplies- there's tips for it in this book. The amount of knowledge jam packed into this paperback is incredible. Because of it, I know how to pack for a successful escape, cook with no electric, and how to raise and grow my own food. Each bit of advice is coupled with step-by-step illustrations so that you can do it correctly, which I thought was a really helpful touch to add to this book. I have had survival guides that haven't had that luxury.
Speaking of food, this book has a bunch of recipes to help your taste buds survive the impending doom while still maintaining flavor and variety into your diet. Plus, the recipes have pun titles and as you know, I love me a good pun. Some of the recipes included in this guide are: Life is Not Just Peachy-Blueberry Cobbler, Dawn of the Bread Salad, and of course Twinkie Trifle and Squirrel Jerky.
This guide is absolutely fantastic. Whether you're a doomsday prepper, an avid fan of The Walking Dead, or just a camper who wants to live off the land, this is a book you ought to have on your shelf or in your car for an emergency. It'd also make a great gift for any horror/zombie lover or prepper!
Thank you so much to BenBella Books who sent me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
