The Modern Survival Retreat: A New and Vital Approach to Retreat Theory and Practice
by Ragnar Benson

Survivalists no longer have to fear invading Russian armies or nuclear war -- the deadly actions at Ruby Ridge and Waco prove that our own government is among the greatest threats to individual freedom today. In light of this disturbing fact, Ragnar Benson has written a companion volume to his classic 1983 book, The Survival Retreat.

In this new book, Ragnar revists such nuts-and-bolts items as picking a retreat location and stocking it properly, but he also addresses such vital issues as pinpointing which government agency is the greatest threat to you; recognizing "trip wire" events that tell you when to occupy your retreat; finding like-minded retreaters through traditional and new avenues; using new technology, from power generators to the Internet, to survive; responding effectively to government propaganda against you; prevailing against massive government resources and weapons during a siege; and much more.

The Survival Retreat: A Total Plan for Retreat Defense
by Ragnar Benson

Now, a fresh approach to retreat defense -- the concealed, low-profile retreat aimed at winning battles by avoiding them.

Ragnar Benson tells how to harden the city or country refuge against the perils of nuclear attack or economic collapse by locating it well and disguising it. This is not a nother grab-a-gun-and-shoot-back book! It is a book describing the ultiamte in courage -- planned, prepared resistance.

"A retreat is a place you go to live, not die. Setting up a retreat is, for the most part, practicing the art of the possible. It's a matter of wisely and shrewdly identifying what you have available and turning it into something usable," writes Benson.

Chapters include Why Retreat?, Retreat Location, Who is the Enemy?, The Psychology of Defense, Beyond Firepower, What If It Comes to a Fight?, and Making It Difficult.

Every year people die needlessly because of hysteria, ignorance or overconfidence in their own abilities. Anyone who runs a snowmobile, flies in airplanes, drives a car or simply lives needs to know how to survive on his or her own.

Survival details the L.I.F.E. system -- your secret formula in an emergency to change what could be a tragedy into a triumph of living -- becoming one with nature instead of fighting it. Life-saving first-aid and wilderness medical care, water procurement, improvised survial tools and weapons -- the skills taught in this book could mean the difference between life and death in any emergency.

In many cases, veterinary mediciens are identical to those medical doctors recommend -- and they cost only a fraction as much. They can be bought without prescription and safely stored until an emergency.

Tetanus, typhoid and gun-wound infections will never again strike fear in the hearts of survivalists who pack this illustrated handbook in with their antibiotics, syringes, sulfa drugs, sewing needles, and sutures.
