1) Packed with inexpensive DIY Projects: There are easily fifty or more DIY projects contained in this book like I said above ranging from water filtration, navigation, alternative water purification, DIY rocket stove, diy lamps and much more.
2) Stock A Prepper Pantry for $10 a week: This book offers several weekly purchasing plans at a local grocery store and also offers helpful tips such as buying from the LDS Cannery (their beginner kits provide you with a ton of food for a very low price and also come with several reference materials and recipes for cooking with food storage).
3) Build A Stove From Used Tin Cans: This book has a three page spread showing how to build a diy rocket stove from a #10 can and two large soup cans which will allow you to burn twigs or whatever you might pick up. My only word of caution is to find a means to make a riser or increase airflow at the top as you will have issues when trying to cook with a frying pan or a large pot. I highly recommend that you check out my DIY HOBO Stove as a potential alternative using alcohol as fuel (Learn How To Build One Here- LINK)
4) Create A Water Filter Using Two 5 Gallon Buckets: The book offers up the gravity bucket filtration system that was featured on "The Colony" TV show, which if you haven't seen the two seasons of the show from a from a few years ago it was a great post grid-down rebuild society with your skills kind of show. If you haven't came across my DIY tripod water filtration system for woods based camping you can find it here (LINK).
5) Craft a Lamp That Burns Inexpensive Vegetable Oil: There are four or five DIY oil lamps which can be made in nearly any metal container including an Altoids tin. I personally haven't made any oil lamps using that method but did make one in the last year using an orange peel and olive oil (See it here- LINK) and I have to say it made the entire house smell amazing!
6) Devise A Storm Shelter Using Trash Bags: This one quasi disappointing me as it only talked about using a 55 gallon drum liner as a diy poncho by simply cutting a hole into the bottom of the drum liner. I would have liked to see the book cover using the drum liners as a mattress, as a holder for a debris bed, as a tarp shelter, ground cover, makeshift tepee (no it doesn't cover the whole thing but gives you rain protection and allows you to cover it in debris) or even as a make shift water proofing for boots. A 55 gallon drum liner is one of the most versatile survival items you can keep in your pocket and I highly recommend that you don't leave home without one.
