The Hippy Survival Guide To Y2K

The Hippy Survival Guide to Y2K

By Mike Oehler

Another classic from my favorite mountain man, Y2K is broken up into two parts.  The first follows Oehler’s 1999 countdown to Y2K.  While it’s obviously a bit dated (and the end isn’t as much of a mystery as when it was written) it’s still a fun read. However, the second part of the book is where the real value is.

Want to know how to catch and cook a squirrel in the city and what parts not to cook?  Ever wonder what kind of wildflowers you can eat from your lawn?  Oehler doles out a bevy of tidbits--everything a post-societal collapse survivor needs to know.  While our hope is that most of this stuff is never necessary, it’s still good information to have and can really get you thinking.

Available at UndergroundHousing.com. And while you are there, check out his novel, One Mexican Sunday.  It's really good, and Oehler will sign it for you if you ask nicely.
