About the Book

Get ready for a refreshing and unique take on preparedness. This essential guide is for regular people who want to handle disaster situations confidently, without digging a network of underground bunkers stockpiled with weaponry.

From the really loud wake-up call of the COVID-19 pandemic to the escalating climate crisis, the world is becoming increasingly unpredictable. It’s time to buckle up—but fear not! Army vet and sustainable organic farmer Bill Fulton and Alaska adventurer and writer Jeanne Chilton Devon will demystify the whole notion of "prepping" and make it accessible and practical for everyone.

In this comprehensive handbook, you'll learn essential knowledge like water sourcing and purification, long-term food storage, stocking a disaster pantry, creating a safe home, assembling evacuation bags, and ensuring your family doesn't drive each other crazy in the face of chaos. You'll also unlock cool survival hacks to save the day when the lights are out, the gas is off, the supermarket is closed, and everyone around you is hunkered down like a mountain hermit.

Unlike other prepping guides, Survive and Thrive recognizes that what we need is a collaborative, sustainable, and family-friendly approach to preparedness. Say goodbye to doomsday paranoia and learn empowering information to help you live better now and have a solid plan for whatever comes tomorrow. SPOILER: That's how we all make it through the 21st century!

With an upbeat attitude, detailed instructions, how-tos, checklists galore, and even historical survival recipes, city dwellers and suburbanites alike will get organized and on the path to sustainability and resilience—whatever may come!


'Survive and Thrive is the guidebook I wish I had while I was tracking down oily criminals in the jungles of Ecuador and the vultures in Africa. Bill and Jeanne have done it again, making a readable, easy-to-understand guide to preparing for and surviving disasters--whether a hurricane, wildfire, or the next pandemic. It's a book that should be on every journalist's shelf.'

'As a life-long prepper and survivalist, I found this book to be extremely informative. The tools you need for a single individual or a family are conveniently located in this easy-to-read guide. Disaster can happen anywhere and at anytime--no matter who you are or where you live. Surviving a disaster is one thing. Thriving afterwards is a completely different situation. If you want to learn how, look no further than this guide.'

'In the face of a climate crisis that may be even worse than we thought, Survive and Thrive is a refreshing dose of positivity with step-by-step guidelines to help us all to literally weather the storm. But beyond being a disaster and preparedness guide, this is a readable, comprehensive manual for a new way of living -- one which teaches and empowers the individual, while also recognizing that it's a collaborative and sustainable model which will be critical to successfully navigating an uncertain future. This should be mandatory 21st-century reading, on every shelf.'

'Sage advice, in my opinion--and I've spent most of my life at the end of a dirt road. The only advice I would add is, work through these checklists with as many neighbors as possible, because in a real crisis (of which a globally heated world will provide plenty) they're going to be your bar-none best survival assets!'

'Where has this been all my adulting life? Informative, comprehensive, self-aware, socially conscious, and most of all relatable and fun to read, this book takes numerous daunting topics and systematically breaks down the overwhelming into the practical as if the co-authors Jeanne and Bill were also coaches right by your side, guiding you along to embrace a unique concept of selfless and benevolent self-reliance (or at the very least knowing you can use Doritos as fire starters... who knew?). I'm glad I now have this on me; that fact alone already makes me feel I could be a tiny bit more ready for the next apocalypse.'
