Overview

When disaster strikes, there are only three types of people: victims, predators, or survivors. By their very nature the criminal element in our society are poised to assume the predatory role. This implies that the vast majority of the civilized population must make a conscious decision to be a victim or to survive. Lack of planning and foresight automatically relegates a huge percentage of society to the role of victim.

With just a little planning and awareness, individuals can change their potential lot in life from victim to that of a survivor. Again, intent of this book is to help individuals prepare to survive disruptions in our modern society. The reader will not find all of the answers in this book; perhaps you will find no answers in this book. I hope that this book will point some in the direction of survival.

Again, this is not written as the definitive survival manual, much of what you read will be suggestions that may not be applicable for every situation. With a little luck, no one will ever have to use the advice of this book to survive a disaster. That being said, many experts expect a nuclear device to explode on American soil within the next few years.

The concept of this book is based upon total societal collapse, with little or no hope for restoration of life as we know it. Many people will read this and immediately discard it as ‘rubbish’ since it is in opposition with their beliefs. Hopefully, others will read it and say, “Hmmm.”

NOTE: All of the content of this book plus more is included in "SURVIVAL II". This version remains available for historical purposes.

Meet the Author

Ronald Goulden has written novels and stories for thirty years. Having served in Viet Nam as a Translator/Interpreter, He quickly adapts to new cultures and sees a story or an adventure everywhere. He has ‘dabbled’ in witchcraft, though he is not a witch. All of his novels and stories have interconnecting threads that link them into a larger universe, spanning space and time. Some of the links are obvious, while others are very subtle. Some of the events in the stories are based on real life, while others are pure fiction. The distinction between fact and fiction is up to the reader. Having studied witchcraft many years earlier, it had always been in my mind. When I became an IT Director for the Farm Credit bank system in Wichita, I observed the ‘power’ a small group of ladies expressed over others in the bank and their general disdain for many of the men. I had also researched the BTK Killer during his spree and developed a program that allowed me to ‘predict’ his next attacks. As such, I saw the potential for violence in anyone. After being treated rather rudely by the band of bank beauties, I decided to write a story to explain their odd and overbearing personalities. Using newspaper stories and personal experiences, I settled on baby sacrifices and Satanism. While the personalities and physical attributes are based upon real people I knew at the time, their involvement is this story is purely fiction. There are many ‘links’ in this story to the other novels I’ve written over time, essentially building an alternate universe.

I thought this book was very real. I meen, the facts are very true and being a history scholar i also believe life as we know it will change drastically before my years are up. Be responsible with this information and if you share this book with children explain it to them so they dont get anxiety. I shared this book while reading it with other like minded friends and found that friends from the country side felt like the book was as real as i. Interestingly though my city friends laughed. I feel sorry for the people who believe we will never see a catastrophy. The world is overpopulated and many of the scenarios in this book have happened in less populated countries so why not here? Why not?

I read this book a few weeks ago and as I recall the author even says that this is not a comprehensive book on survival, rather it is meant to be used as a channel to provoke thinking about survival in the face of natural disasters, plagues, economic collapse, and the like. A quick and easy read, this book provided enough of a catalyst to get me researching the topic of survival further in other publications and on the Internet. I know there's a bit of a stigma when it comes to "preppers" or survivalists, but as we have seen most recently with those affected by Hurricane Sandy along the eastern seaboard, these catastrophic events can and will happen. In my opinion, this is a quick and easy read that does well to provide an overview on how to prepare for survival situations.

This book was very factual but delivered in a cut and dried manner without explaining those facts. I would have been more glued to this book had it been more descriptive and possibly given solutions and suggestions to the issues described. Hate to say it but this is a great book for a beginner survivalist. However ,has little to offer someone looking to expand their knowledge or skills.

A girl with long blonde hair is flying through the air towards the island. She crashes face first into the sand and wobbly stands up, spitting out sand.
