Just in Case
in Case: How to be Self-sufficient When the Unexpected Happens, by Kathy Harrison, is a
good introduction to preparedness, especially for those of us who don't
particularly expect an apocalypse and just want to make sure we're
ready for more mainstream disasters. As with any book of this
type, you have to tweak the information to match your own lifestyle ---
I ignored all of the information about teaching your kids to go down
fire ladders and so forth, and I wouldn't use any of her very-grainy
recipes. On the other hand, I especially enjoyed the few tidbits
the author presented about her own childhood, during which children
bathed infrequently and were expected to rinse out their own underwear
and socks in the sink every night. And I think she was wise to
focus on learning skills, since stocking up on emergency supplies does
little good if you don't know how to use them.
