I was recently watching The Day After Tomorrow, and there was a point at which a man was trying to save a book because of it's significance to him. If the world were ending, and you could only save one book, what book would it be?
I think if I were in that situation... It would have to be 'Edible Plants of North America.'
Mom & Dad's Bible
Excellent question, Tiffany! I'm trying to get my hands on:
Where there is no DoctorOR Wilderness Medicine by Dr. Forgey
;P But I like your choice as well!!! I also can appreciate the following books enough to sit and pull out my hair trying to decide while my window of opportunity to escape to safety dwindles to nilch... Primitive Wilderness Living and Survival Skills
A Field Guide to Medicinal Plants and Herbs
THE FORAGER'S HARVEST
(I know. You said one. But I haven't found one that covers EVERYTHING!) ~Skhye
I haven't either. So, no counting books you don't currently own! AND they have to be out of storage where you can get them easily!
These books should never be packed away unless they're in a BUG OUT BAG! ;P I use them for writing my post-apocalyptic stuff. So, not packed away...
I have no survival books, but I do have Stephen King's original The Stand which tells a great deal about how to get things when the power's out and stuff like that. Or I would grab Little House on the Prairie.
I haven't read Little House on the Prairie, but The Stand was a good book. Not sure how much survival info it really contains, though.I've noticed Skhye usually has a lot of survival info in her books, but you can only cram so many facts into a fiction before it becomes non-fiction.
Oh, you guys are being too smart and sensible. hehe I would take "A Guide to Kidnapping" and snatch Bear Grylls. THAT man could keep me alive and drooling!Wait, is this a hypothetical question? :-D
LMFAO Well, if we're talking kidnapping here, I'll go with Lock off Lost. Not pretty to look at, but he sure knew how to survive!
Can I grab Q-tips and toilet paper instead?
How funny. But I understood the question to be what book meant so much to you that would want it with you when everything else was lost. And the truth is, I don't have one. I have many.
Well, if toilet paper is out, I guess I'd have to go with the Sears catalog.... But if we're talking about a book I couldn't live without... I'm not sure I have one. Maybe a really, really big notebook?
