Whenever I look at this book, When All Hell Breaks Loose, by Cody Lundin it always amazes me. I don’t know how many of you are familiar with him, but if you have ever watched episodes of Dual Survivor, he is the one in the shorts with no shoes on. Cody lives “off the grid in a passive solar earth home where he catches rain, composts wastes, and pays nothing for heating or cooling.” The book is sort of like him — very different, with lots of good information. It covers everything from how to cook rats to how to use rocks when you have no toilet paper.
I would not call it a manual on food storage. It falls sort of between the usual preparedness books and survival manuals. It is especially valuable if you live in a desert area. The water and food gathering tips are great. His insights into eating out of date and spoiled canned foods are interesting.
The book is a bit hard to read and is a bit on the wordy side. It’s 450 pages and I think he could have said it in less. But overall, I recommend the book. Just realize it is a bit different and you have to dig a bit to find the gems.
