    Default reading three books...

    I am in the process of reading three books...


    "Castaway" by Lucy Irving...

    about a woman who volunteers to live for one year on a small island off the coast of Australia.

    "The Naked Communist" by Cleon Skousen

    About exposing Communism and it's socialist patterns operating in America...the progressive plan

    https://www.amazon.com/Naked-Communi...ommunist&psc=1


    and "Our Crowd" by Stephen Birmingham

    about the Great Jewish Families of New York.

    https://www.amazon.com/Our-Crowd-Jew...es+of+new+York


    It will take me some time to get through these books...but I am looking for certain tell tale markers of interest ...within a pattern.


    The Castaway book by Lucy Irving was very interesting and informative not only from a human standpoint but also from a survival standpoint and brought home to me the high susceptibility of the human creature to infections from Insects and other nastys in a survival situation. Also the effects of poor diet for which we take so for granted in our nations of plenty. I am about finished with this book and will be moving on to The Naked Communist.

    Tom, Far too many people have no idea of the hardships and difficulties they would face should the SHTF. Such has been one of my main points of interest for many years. How many know which plants can be used to fight off infection, and a WHOLE BUNCH of other very needful stuff. It won't be easy for any of us, but those who aren't prepared with knowledge and skills are gonna be in for a VERY rough time of it...and many won't survive.
