First of it’s kind. . .
“How to Survive and Thrive When the Power is Out” is a must for keeping your ass alive and comfortable when life turns off normal.
Iron Mountain, Michigan– This book has seen phenomenal sales since it’s release in 2015. A handy guide/personal journal that you will want to keep coming back to. Between it’s pages J.L. Noakes has, with great dedication, captured the know-how from real people who lived before the wide spread use of electricity and recoded them here before they are lost to us forever.
From their stories of basic daily living and hardships we learn how to keep for cold, meat preservation recipes, about ladies and babies needs, many herbal remedies and making soap from scratch, to a heart wrenching interview with a Jewish Polish woman in her 90’s as she recounts her life of Nazi occupied Poland during WWII. “Her story broke my heart and kept me up several nights while I was writing”, Noakes explains. All these and much more are held in this unique, one of a kind book of know-how.
“How to Survive and Thrive When the Power is Out”, offers secrets from our ancient sisters to early 1900’s domestic divas. Our great grandmothers kept her family comfortable and healthy without electricity. How did she do it? Every woman with children will want this one in her go bag for sure.
It is a time that has come, many families today are simply wishing a little more self reliance and peace of mind. You will want this one for your personal library because I guarantee you will come back to it time and again. Also, within each section you will find perfect pages to catalog your own stories and triumphs to pass down to future generations.
Power outages seem to be a way of life for many of us now, with unpredictable weather, and sabre rattling by out of control groups and governments. One never knows what might be just over the horizon.
Because of some of the interviews and true women’s knowledge, I included a controversial section on “Ladies and babies needs.” How to make your own pregnancy test. Herbs and other birth control methods and making baby formula and diapers when these items are unavailable. Teen girls and young women are most vulnerable in times of war and occupation.
