The Lost Ways prepares you to deal with worst-case scenarios with the minimum amount of resources just like our forefathers lived their lives, totally independent from electricity, cars, or modern technology whatsoever, which means you’ll also be bulletproof against the ever-increasing threat of an Electro-Magnetic Pulse, a Powerful Economic Breakdown, Famines, and Natural Disasters.
You’ll discover the lost remedies used by our ancestors for centuries. And I’m not talking about rare and complicated insights that only a botanist knows. I’m talking about plants that grow in your backyard or around your house. Very common weeds. For example, this common driveway weed is one of nature’s most powerful survival plants, it’s not only edible, but it’s super nutritious, easy to identify, has no poisonous look-alikes and it is used as medicine.
You’ll also discover 25 other survival foods that we’ve lost to history. You can bring them back to life and improve your stockpiles, so you’ll never run out of food in a crisis. Or you can spend fun weekends with your family recreating old survival recipes like Mud Apples or Mormon Johnnycake.
You’ll find out the techniques and methods used by the wise sheriffs from the frontiers to defend an entire village despite being outnumbered and outgunned by gangs of robbers and bandits, and how you can use their wisdom to defend your home against looters when you’ll be surrounded. You’ll learn to do when there is no more ammo to be had, how people who wandered the West managed to hunt eight deer with six bullets, and why their supply of ammo never ran out.
You’ll master “The Art of Poultice.” If you explore the ingredients from which our forefathers made poultices, you’ll be totally surprised by the similarities with modern medicines. Well…how would you feel in a crisis to be the only one from the group knowledgeable about this lost skill?
You’ll learn how Native Americans build the subterranean roundhouse, an underground house that today will serve you as a storm shelter, a perfectly camouflaged hideout, or a bunker. It can easily shelter three to four families, so how will you feel if, when all hell breaks loose, you’ll be able to call all your loved ones and offer them guidance and shelter? Besides that, the subterranean roundhouse makes an awesome root cellar where you can keep all your food and water reserves year-round.
You’ll gain the lost knowledge of sailors from the XVII century who preserved water in their ships for months on end even years and you’ll find out how you can use this method to preserve clean water for your family cost-free.
I believe it is as valuable as a pantry full of survival food in a crisis. I began surfing through the table of contents and ended up reading the entire book. Gets right to the point, and, very informative. Clear pictures. Covers every topic I would want and many I didn’t think of.
We also gathered wild foods and medicines. I still do some and share that with others. I love learning about natural and wild foods, medicines, Pemmican making, old ways of doing things and incorporating that into my life.
About Claude Davis
Claude Davis is an old-fashioned guy by any standard. He is fascinated by the old days, when people were wiser, healthier and more independent.
He’s a firm believer of “practice what you preach”, so he has personally built a log cabin where he lives with his wife and two children.
Cooking outside on an open flame, making his own clothes and stockpiling homemade canned foods are just a few of the things he loves doing.
He believes that the teaching of our forefathers can prepare us for anything in life.
After all, a crisis is what people 150 years ago called daily life: no electricity, no computers, no internet, no supermarkets and no pharmacies in sight.
And still they came out on top, otherwise we wouldn’t be here.
Claude considers that lifestyle to be the building block that shaped modern day America and turned young people from softballs to hardened adults, ready to face anything life threw at them.
