Read this one as a kid and it had a profound effect on me. Read it again every few years as well. One of my favorite books. "Beware the Stobor" remains very good advice indeed. Nutshell plot is that ... Read full review

This book was recommended in the group Apocalypse Whenever because it highlighted how individuals and a fledgling society can survive and indeed prosper with the minimum of tools. The writing style ... Read full review

User Review  - Ker - Goodreads
