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 – Fiction

Emergency Exit – 2020

One Year Later – the sequel to One Second After

The Borrowed World


Books – Non-Fiction

Backyard Farming on an Acre (more or less)

Microshelters: 59 Creative Cabins, Tiny Houses, Tree Houses, and Other Small Structures

The Survival Medicine Guide

  1. Just finished reading a book called “Dark Ages 2020”. It is a story that brings together a lot of different pieces of the puzzles…the Bildenbergers, New World Order, Preping for the coming of the New World Order, the FEMA camps….all of it comes together in this new novel by JD Dutra. It is almost a horror story of how the Shadow Government, those behind the scenes that run the country, manipulate the currency, the wars we get involved in, employment and the entitlement of the masses in this country and others. If you read the story, you’ll recognize the president of the US…yep, Barry himself.

    I got it on kindle. I think it’s worth a read. I’m waiting on Vol. 2 to come out.
