Description

Droughts & Dreams is the book that will have you returning to your shelves again and again for wisdom and inspiration. On each and every page, you’ll find incredible true stories — including those from My Patriot Supply customers — of people who practiced self-reliance to survive the Great Depression.


When the stock market crashed in October 1929, many people were forced to give up their lavish consumer lifestyles and get back to the basics of homesteading. Instead of letting their situation go from bad to worse, these survivors worked hard to create a better, more simple life. They grew and raised their own food, they bartered to get what they needed and they worked together.


As you turn through the pages of this book, you’ll find the lessons inside are just as relevant today as they were then and will be for generations to come. Plus, the forewords by Glenn Beck and Matt Redhawk — owner of My Patriot Supply — give you a practical guide for applying the lessons in the book to your own life.

Fantastic Book! November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Taylor, TX United States  
"Droughts & Dreams" was an incredible and easy to read book! It's broken down into many personal stories, each only a few pages long. If you enjoy history and/or learning from those who have actually survived (and sometimes thrived) in desperate times, you will enjoy this book. No "theories" here, just basic, practical ways of living that made the difference between life and death for many. I absolutely loved it.

A Must Read April 1, 2016
Reviewer: Franzez E Sorensen from Elsinore, UT United States  
Never hurts to know how folks handed bad situations in the past and after reading this book, I am now aware how much I "didn't" know at all!  Has made a huge difference on how I am preparing......
