Rourke’s Weekly Recommendations

Every week I throw out a few recommendations on things such as movies, books, knives, flashlights – all kinds of stuff. Some of these are not related to preparedness whatsoever – rather, just stuff I like. Most are available on Amazon but not all. I have a particular fondness for movies as one of my favorite things to do is to sit back and watch a good one.

So – for this week……here is my list:


Books (non-fiction)

Compact Cabins: Simple Living in 1000 Square Feet or Less

The Backyard Homestead

The Weekend Homesteader



Books (fiction)

Through Many Fires: Strengthen What Remains


Day Zero – Volume 1



Dual Survival TV Series

Ultimate Survival Alaska: Season 1

Mountain Men: Season 1

  1. I just got done reading a book, The Eden Prescription, by Ethan Evers. It is a fictional account of a scientist who discovers a natural cure for cancer, and how Big Pharma tries to bring it down. Very interesting, and very disturbing in light of the recent deaths of natural practicioners. (Arlene, I think you’d enjoy it) Highly recommended!
