I bought this book as part of a gift of two books about water harvesting and storage for prepper’s, for my father. My dad loves reading prepper’s guides and information. I picked this one for him because it targeted something he was really interested in: water. This book has so much information. It begins with a great introduction, explaining the importance of water and why we need to be so careful with it. The book contains information about why everyone needs to have an idea of a safe water supply, including non-preppers. It provides incidences in which safe water was scarce for a time. It convinced me to continue reading the book, even as a non-prepper myself! It outlines ways of storing water safely (did you know milk jugs are not a good option?) as well as harvesting the water. Most interesting to me were the chapters on purifying water and finding emergency sources of water. I found it completely fascinating and I learned so much! I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if they are preppers or if they just find water information such as this interesting. I thought it was so useful and I feel a little better knowing about how to collect, store, and purify water!
I thought this book was well written and comprehensive. It have facts and reasons and did not fill the reader with fear, but with truth and a game plan.It's not a crazy thing to plan for disaster. Not even an apocalypse, but the chance that over the course of one's life, there could be a problem with having access to clean water. I already keep two gallons of water on hand, but I need to do plan for at least a gallon a day for at least two weeks. Luther shows the reader how to accomplish this without breaking the bank.The biggest thing I took from Luther's book is to be prepared as use any resource availabe accordingly. Drinking water is obviously a big deal, buthe without water on hand for washing and sanitizing, a variety of issues can still arise, including death.Not to end on a down note, there are things in this book anyone can use daily. If you travel, make sure you have plenty of water on hand (should be obvious, but...) and one can make their own homemade electrolyte drink in a pinch! No need for Gatorade when most people already have the proper ingredients in their home!
Officially getting into the prepper state of mind. Full of amazing and helpful information. I didn't realize how much I didn't know! This is a complete guide. Most likely the ONLY water related prepping guide one will ever need. Covers finding, conserving, storing and treating water; along with illnesses that come from contaminated water, their symptoms and treatments. Also has many other gold nuggets of knowledge; like waste removal, website urls for further research on a variety of topics, an accurate description of what life without water would be like and drills to prepare for the inevitable.
This book outlines a lot of basics and highlights the need for you to be prepared for an emergency. The author also outlines many possible solutions and gives you great advice on how to get started making your plan. However, on perhaps the most crucial aspects the book does not go into too much detail. (A step by step guide is given for making an outhouse, but no guide is given for how to make a distillation system, UV light system, etc.) The individual methods of purification are listed, which is a great starting point, but little advice is given as to how to implement them.So I'll say this book is a great starting point, but ultimately does not contain all the information needed. You'll learn by reading it, but it is just shy of being a "one stop shop" for all your water - survival needs.
Well, well, well… Is a place you may find water and my initial brain rumblings about Daisy Luther’s water survival guide. The “Well, well, well…” is all about me thinking I knew as much information on securing, purifying, and storing water, as possible. Being able to enjoy a book that teaches me new and simple ways to hold dear that water resource is of utmost importance in a short or long term SHTF situation.Plus, this book covers way more than I thought it would. Daisy leads you to consider the facts in areas such as; sanitation, causes of illness and its toxins, how it would look & feel to be without water, and how everyone needs this resource to stay healthy. The 2 major items that I never deeply considered were the “Toxins in municipal water supplies” and “Sanitation”. They were at the back of my brain, but now I pay more attention on these issues.When it is time to actually get a plan and learn how to find, transport, store and purify the H2O, she has it all laid out in terms that any layman can understand and implement. There is no talking-down to the reader about how dense they might’ve been when it comes to always having water available.If there was anything that I’d like to have changed, it is the order in which the chapters are laid out. Perhaps add chapter 12 after chapter 4 and having an order of chapters 8, 11, 7, 9, and then 10. Having it order, in my opinion, of how one would go about the tasks of making your water plan work from top to bottom may serve the reader better.Recommended? Absolutely add this book to your prepper and/or survival library. Hey, if you don’t have a collection like that, then this is a good place to start.
