For a limited period 10% off Launch Price... Reference book and methodology guide for sourcing food and water in times of disaster or emergency. Hungry, thirsty, cold. Imagine a natural, catastrophic, disaster has occurred; that giant tsunami or mega-meteor strike sometimes talked about. Supermarket shelves are bare, there is no water in the taps, no electricity to cook by or charge your mobile phone, and you may now own nothing more than the clothes you stand in. Infrastructure is virtually non-existent and no one is coming to assist you, since there are millions of other people prioritized for help by whatever government that still remains before they even begin to think about you. Welcome to a post-industrial Stone Age. The entire focus of this 147,000 word book is on the acquisition and storage of foraged food and water sources, raising small animals for food, details on cooking with fire and other food-water related topics, plus 'alternative' recipes that use every scrap of food.

An inspirational journey around the world, looking at Stephen's top 80 perennial leafy green vegetables. There are stories of the wild foraging traditions of indigenous people in all continents: from the Maori of New Zealand, the rich traditions of the Mediterranean people, high altitude foods with the Sherpas in the Himalayas and the wild aquatic plant that sustained Native American tribes with a myriad of foodstuffs and other products. Each vegetable is given a thorough description, including its traditions, stories, cultivation, where to source seeds and plants, and how to propagate it. There is also a sprinkling of recipes inspired by local gastronomy. This adventure in climate-friendly vegetable growing is interesting to both traditional vegetable and ornamental gardeners, as well as people interested in permaculture, forest gardening, foraging and ethnobotany. Foreword by Alys Fowler.
