I'm always digging around first aid books, backwoods medical journals, herbal medicine journals, and wilderness living books. They're a wealth of information, which are still very relevant in modern metropolitan lives. I have both digital and print copies of Carla Emery's The Encyclopedia of Country Living
, which I tend to read more than any other book. However, of all media, I dip into the archives of Backwoods Home Magazine
the most. Most of the knowledge in these books, make for great contingency plans, when things go wrong or something important needs to get done. That why I'm usually the go-to guy
, in any group.
