Food Supply Self Sufficiency February 9, 2015
Reviewer: Garry Bright from Keller, TX United States  
My shipment arrived on time and as promised. As a relatively new prepper, I am trying to get prepared for the potential to have to feed my own family or just to save money and improve the quality and freshness of my meals. Many circumstances could lead to a need for my own food supply, some short term needs and some more long term. My motto is as follows: "Better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it". I recommend you do the same. After reviewing this book, I expect to be better prepared to be self-sufficient. And if I am not, I will have a great reference to help me do that.
