JWR’s Recommendations of the Week:


The Foxfire Book series (in 11 volumes, but the first five are the best)

When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability, and Surviving the Long Emergency by Matthew Stein (SurvivalBlog’s Backcountry Editor)


Some Will Not Die by Algis Budrys (Plague total wipe-out scenario. This book was another with an influence in my writing.)


Raiders of the Lost Ark (The later installments in the Indiana Jones movies aren’t nearly as good.)

Groundhog Day
