Natural Disaster Survival GUI [NDH]

The Foraging Companion Home Guide is a downloadable feature-laden guide for common wild and naturalised edible plants of temperate North America, and Britain and Northern Europe (there is a guide for each of those two areas, to suit your needs).

Natural Disaster Survival GUI [NDH]

Whether you want to know about that weed in the garden or want to prepare for a potential survival situation, this guide is one of the handiest reference guides on foraging. It is designed for quick access to all the essential information you want at your fingertips, no more wading through long text to find the facts you are looking for.

The information in the guide is given in good faith, but is not complete. Consumption of plants is at the reader's own risk and discretion. Some guidance may reduce the risk of starvation in a survival situation, but it is best to err on the safe side when other food is available.

Occasionally, starving people have resorted to cannibalism for survival necessity. Classical antiquity recorded numerous references to cannibalism during siege starvations. More recent well-documented examples include the Essex sinking in 1820, the Donner Party in 1846 and 1847, and the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 in 1972. Some murderers, such as Albert Fish, Boone Helm, Andrei Chikatilo, and Jeffrey Dahmer, are known to have devoured their victims after killing them. Other individuals, such as artist Rick Gibson and journalist William Seabrook, have legally consumed human flesh out of curiosity or to attract attention to themselves.

The United States has felt the fateful impact of this fact of life many times from the American Revolution to Cuba. She has often neglected to be strong at sea and thereby gravely suffered. She did so after World War I. Consequently she met repeated disaster because she entered World War II with too small a Navy, further reduced by the Pearl Harbor treachery. The blessings of victory rose from the ashes through superb leadership, courage, skill, resolution, and a mighty fleet built to the stature required by a nation that would be mighty in the affairs of men.

Fleet Admiral Nimitz, whose Forward illumines this volume, provided much of the magnificent leadership needed. The submarine service which he had helped nurture from his younger days as a submarine skipper played a giant role indeed in transforming disaster into victory. In doing so, submariners wrote shining new epics in naval tradition. 041b061a72
